After reading several of threads of backup solutions, I think a sticky should be created.

Here's my solution from another thread:

I've researched and know external hard drives are cheap and plentiful but they still can go bad. And you'll be back to square one again.

I've also burned backup copies to dvd's and cd's. This was a pain in the butt and makes it difficult to organize when the images and videos are larger than the disc sizes.

I just added a Buffalo LinkStation Pro Duo NAS to my wireless network. I too have been worried about my digital images and videos. I decided to add this unit as a RAID 1 (2 Mirrored or idential drives) as my backup because my desktop is my main storage and it's almost 5 years old.

This NAS drive works great! I'm able to access this drive from either my laptop or desktop with no problems. The drawbacks of this unit is the bandwith or speed to transfer the data wireless and the cost of the unit. I figure the cost and time to backup will out weigh the loss of invaluable data.

Now I'm able to sleep better and not have to worry about my backups.
