Found it interesting in another thread regarding preferred memory card sizes that many (if not most) use smaller sized cards (16 or 32gb) to minimise the risk of loosing pics due to “memory card failure”.

Or memory card loss, or theft, or user errors that might result in unreadability.

I’ve been into digital since 2001 & taken thousands (or 100s of thousands)of pics using memory sticks, compact flash, sd, micro sd without (knock on wood) ever had a single card failure.

Statistically, that's the norm ... but failures have occurred, and people have different risk tolerances. Some just feel better having their eggs in more than one basket.
