I wasn't saying backing up to a thumbdrive is bad, I just said I don't do it as my backups are larger.

For my data, on my server, I keep a secondary drive with a 7 day rotation of my critical files. Once a month or so, those are backed up to a pair of external drives which are kept offsite.
You miss my point of "most critical". Yeah, I've terabytes of backups and myriad ways of backing that data up but my "most critical" is far far less than that. In this scenario if I could only take a small thumb drive what would I take?

Yes, I plan for that as well
