DO get RAID - Hard drives fail frequently
In reply to AofA, Apr 10, 2013

Today's drives are about as reliable as floppy disks were a couple of decades ago.

I.e... your disk could fail at any time.

Having mirrored or even RAID 5/6 storage is cheap insurance for your precious photos.

And yes, keeping an offsite backup (online or otherwise) is also valuable unless you live somewhere with no fires, no earthquakes, no lightning, no burglaries.... you get the idea
