You must have some really valuable data to be considering storing it an a safety deposit box. The only thing I regularly backup are our family pictures and I do that with a networked external hard drive.
Its not really my data. Its for my dad. He has hundreds of CDs, and over a period of a couple of years, he loaded them all onto his computer, and slowly deleted the ones he doesn't like. He is now getting rid of ALL of his CDs, and he wants me to make sure that there is a 100% chance that we will be able to get the data back in the case of a disaster/ anything else. He already pays for a saftey deposit box, and theres extra room in there, so its not like he has to rent another one. I suggested to put all of his music onto an SSD, and he liked the idea. He has about 30GB of music. He also worrys about our family pictures, so we are going to throw another 30GB of pictures on there, too. He has the extra money for the drive, so why not.
As for cloud storage, is it really best to put all that data onto cloud storage? im not really familiar with it.
