Re: Recommendations for long term storage: RAID or ??

I'm happy with a Synology Diskstation NAS.  I make backups of it to USB disks attached to the NAS directly.  I've four copies of all the data with two off site.  The NAS has copy and backup options built in.

You don't need RAID, which isn't about data security, it is about continuous availability.

The lower end Diskstations are about £100.
