I have two 4TB Lacie Quadra external hard drives. One is a back up for the other. Every three or four years I buy a new one and regulate the older one for the back up. So far it’s been working.

What would you guys recommend for cloud storage for say at least 2tb?  This is mainly photographs I really don't want to loose

I don't recommend cloud storage for such a large library unless you host it yourself.

Get a couple extra 4 TB drives and keep them with trusted friends and family, or in a safe deposit box. Much cheaper than a cloud subscription I bet, and won't take days and days to load terabytes over your data connection.

I do audio and multi-angle video. As much as I like storing it all in the cloud it's not an option with this amount of data (50+ GB per show)

I have almost 8TB on Backblaze. It took 7 months to upload, but I, like you have lots of video and audio content.

I did the $50 a year deal. You get a free month (so do I) if you use my referral link. https://secure.backblaze.com/r/01scop If this is not allowed, please delete or PM me, and I will remove.
