I have my photos on 4 hard drives, videos on three, music on 5 , I think.

I update regularly to the first tier back up, less regularly to the 3rd and 4th.

Cloud storage has zero interest for me. It's like giving things I own and want to keep to someone and asking for them whenever I need them. Simply because I do not want them to take up space in my spacious garage. And even though the guy holding them lives next to me and is accessible 24/7, one day he may move , or have an accident, or have whatever.

Not for me, zero interest.

Where do you keep the disks?

I know where this is going. And you're right, they are all on site. But, somehow it does not bother me.

Which is fine, if you're happy with that combination of the various cost and risk trade-offs. The point is though that there are many things about cloud based backup that can be perceived as big advantages.
