My policy has evolved over the years...

1. Delete all photographs with extreme prejudice, save for the keepers.

2. Twin your media hard drive and mirror it on a RAID.

3. Backup to a third hard drive has often you as can and keep either in your office or other accessible location.

4. Backup your newest images to an online source till you update the backup hard drive you keep off-site, you can then delete your online stash and start the process all over again.

I used to back up to DLT tape backup system using Veritas but lets face it, even if they are more reliable HDs are cheap these days.
