One or two TB, dirt cheap; use as backup and recovery: I put a Dymo label on each one as they fill, then unplug them and keep them in a Tupperware container until (not if) they are needed for recovery of an older file. Put one in a bank vault! Even with a D800 it will take a little time for the drives to fill, so why not?

We put it in the safe deposit box b/c of the risk of house fire. A few years ago a neighbor lost most of the contents of his house to fire. I realized that we were storing the Time Capsule and back-up hard drives in the basement, where water would eventually flow if a fire needed to be extinguished. I need to be better about backing up to the drives.....
