    All my Documents Digital, (some stored on Onedrive) Some stored on 3 Externals, Not sure i trust storing one offsite though at Family Members place, thought about it, but likely hood of getting damaged/lost there is another worry of mine, might replace my oldest external at Christmas, and give it a shot storing 1 copy off site.

    (Currently have 3 Western Digital externals, Might Try a Seagate next perhaps USB 3.1 if available and reasonable priced)

    I store mine in safety deposit box. When I stored at brothers I used Truecrypt. For the average theft more than sufficient.

    While everyone is talking about backups on their external devices are any of these external devices kept offsite?

    Not saying cloud is the way to go, just asking.
    I keep one backup in my fire proof (7hrs) gun safe @ my residence + one copy @ my sons also in a similar safe. All external unit have USB + E-Sara. 1tb each, all are WD Black spinners.

    I have 1 WD 1TB HDD that was replaced in August because of my old HDD, the same one but was Ultra, was damaged because it was dropped. Everything is stored in there, and has a password because of old bank account statements for my weekly totals and so forth are on there and when I see my mother go in and out of the room, she might think I am doing something illegal.

    Hi,
    Don't worry where ever you put backups the FBI will find them
