We are taking the best — printing them — and getting them in albums... But aside from keeping them all on my wife's macbook and continuing to use TimeMachine as the back up for that — I want a dedicated backup solution simply for the videos and photos.
My only best idea at the moment is to purchase two 2TB hard drives and back up to one and then back up the back up to the second hard drive. Then once one fails — I buy 2 more and move the backups to the new drives. This really my best option?
We are currently using TimeMachine on my wife's MacBook Pro as our back-up... so for now we are doing ok with that as a back-up. But my parents have offered to help pay for something that might be a better solution.
We could burn DVD's — but that is tedious and gets to be a pain as we would need to back those up (or recopy) them every year or so to be sure we aren't suffering from degrading dvds.
Is our best option right now to pick up 2 hard drives, back-up all our pictures and videos to the first, and then use a 3rd party app to mirror that drive to a second — just in case one of them craps out?
Is there an online solution that would be better? We are still a few years away from being able to afford the dvds/cds that are the 100+ year discs... is there a better solution I haven't thought of?
Thanks for the help and suggestions!"
