SSD for secure backup storage

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a 4TB WHS backing up all of the computers in the house, so if any of the computers in the house fails, I will be fine. However, I need a solution for if he server, and all of the computers get damaged. For example, in a fire. I was thinking of putting all of my most important data on a 64GB(or more) SSD, and then putting it in a safety deposit box. This way, all of our data is 100% safe. Obviously, speed does not matter, but reliability does. What are some SSD and enclosure recommendations? Budget i around $200

Why not just get a shock rated external hard drive?

Or if you are really concerned you could upload everything to remote cloud storage.

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.

Just use cloud storage. An SSD doesn't really sound like the best solution, to me anyway.

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.

You might want to rip all of those CDs again with EAC into FLAC or 320kb/s MP3, you know just to get the best quality that you can as an archive. But be warned FLAC will eat up some storage space.

Honestly, I don't think it matters. All he does is listen to the music on itunes, through computer speakers. I don't think it would be necessary.
