You can never have too many backups!
In reply to Trevor Carpenter, May 20, 2013

One backup is also tempting faith...

My (work) laptop holds everything, including all my photos. It has a backup drive at work so unless I'm there the backup is in a different place than the laptop (geographic distribution is important in case of fire or other disaster). I have everything on a small server at home. I have all my photos on a server at work. And I have them on Zenfolio. So I have 5 copies of all my photos, in three locations. I feel quite safe. But with just a single backup I would definitely not feel safe.
