ok. thnx for the responses.

i think i understand the difference between back-up and storage.

Apple has Time Capsule. (i haven't even used Apple's Time Machine either.)

do i need them?

i don't use any system right now to back up my laptop at all.

it would be best to use a large Thunderbolt storage device. i don't hv USB 3,

and then have my image/video archive copied to another device and stored in my locker room (away from my Apt.).

Regarding backup, picture this scenario: Your house or apartment burns down, your laptop included. Do you have a reliable, duplicate set of files somewhere else that you can restore from? If so, you have the essentials of what you need. If not, you are SOL.

If right now, all your files are just on your laptop, you are playing with fire. You could lose everything at any moment.
