What to do about backup? Go Cloud, or keep it on your own media?

    about 5 years ago

    It's a big dilemma for me. I do have some cloud services like Mozy, which I use to backup. I also have dropbox and use google to put some stuff there, but I haven't found one single solution that's better, all-in-all than my faithfull external HD. I know, if something happens to it, I'm doomed, that's why I send around my data through many services....but I can't help to feel the same on the cloud site: if for some reason I don't have a connection, my data is unreachable.
