They always fail out of nowhere!

That's why we are always surprised, I guess.  If it is manufactured, it WILL break eventually.  It doesn't sound as if the failure was a disaster for you, but for those who don't know, you need a multilevel approach to backup and recovery.  An external HD AND removable media such as DVDs or tape.  If you can tolerate the cost and slow speeds, an online level won't hurt either.  Both onsite and of site storage.  The more economic value your photos have, the more strenuous your disaster recovery should be.

The exact nature of your plan isn't nearly as important as its existence.
