I have struggled with whether to sign up for an offsite backup service, and this kind of report is one of the reasons why I just can't get there. The chances of my laptop and an external hard drive both going down in flames seem pretty remote. I think I'll invest in a 750 gig external hard drive and be done with it.

I can understand the merits of saving locally but what about a disaster should this happen whether this is man-made or natural.

I can understand the apprehensions of making backups over the Internet - but the connection is completely encrypted and not something any hacker can crack

If do setup an account with an line backup service - make sure the user name and passwords are not obvious
