I'm worried about always relying on my home network for storage. I worry that one day my 1TB of storage will die and I will lose everything. I store everything from funny pictures off the internet to sensitive, confidential files on my trusty external HDD but it's starting to get old. I want to always know that I have a secure, encrypted copy of everything I have somewhere - whether it be a NAS solution or online.
If online backups are the way to go, then how do I add more layers of protection? I've been told that the online backup companies don't do enough to secure our files. I want to have that piece of mind knowing that my files are sitting in some datacenter somewhere, fully secured. I'm open to all options, but I'm on a budget. I've looked at NAS solutions (the concept interests me, but it doesn't cure all my worries), as well as Mozy, Box.Net etc.
