Yea, that was stupid of me. The ones I could get I have put on some good JVC discs and also a extra hardrive. Thanks for everyone's help!

Files are all encrypted before transmission. If you are really paranoid, you can provide your own key (instead of letting them generate one). Downside is that if you lose your key, no-one else can decrypt your files...

I'd say cloud backup service are A-OK already and probably safer than storing files on your own PC. As I RAID/backup locally too, I have never had to recover yet... I take it as an insurance on my data.

doesn't matter how "encrypted" something is, just take a look at recent news, everything is getting hacked.

This. Nothing is 100%...especially in the hands of someone else that has ulterior motives.

That unfortunately does nothing from physical theft, are you keeping these in a safe or have copies off site?

Mr. Weiner tried to store some of his pictures away from his computer and look what happened. Be careful.
