If you don't have two copies it's temporary.

Two copies in separate physical locations—current backups to the cloud, a full USB drive to your storage unit or uncle in Vermont periodically. Drive do fail with age, test every year or so.

There have been bad batches of drives make sure the members of a pair are different mechanisms. (Not just different people building the case!)

Drives are getting seriously cheap, 4tb for $169 at Fry's this week.
Absolutely priceless stuff also needs archival prints.
