    I've been looking at the AWS Glacier service. You have to roll your own, there are some apps to help, but it seems quite cost effective.

    I personally wouldn`t trust online back ups , I just use two drives and mirror them . Keeping one drive at a relative or good friends house is probably a good shout if they are local enough .

    Thanks for all your comments.

    Looks like single bay NAS sited in separate building is way to go as I ready have one physical backup.

    It may be worth considering NOT having back-up drives permanently connnected - if one of the dreaded encryption attacks hits you, your backup will be worthless. I use an external backup drive, but I only connect it when the backup program tells me it is needed AND the computer appears to be running OK.

    Just out of interest, why would you not trust an offline backup solution offered by AWS (Amazon)?
