      I have two redundant, networked drives in the basement for data back-up.
      But, they are susceptible to the same scenarios as you describe above.

      I guess you could consider my web space back-up as well for my photos
      The "thumbs" are linked to the original files stored on the web server.
      But, that is all for not. When I kick the bucket, the web site gets
      wiped and all is lost.
      Compared to books, digital data is ephemeral.
