    They go down and you lost everything. Time it takes to upload to the cloud may take days and days.
    Use a USB drive or slave one in and use it.

    The 3-2-1 Backup Strategy
    A 3-2-1 strategy means having at least 3 total copies of your data, 2 of which are local but on different mediums (read: devices), and at least 1 copy offsite, (in the cloud).

    Weíll use "Kitten.jpg" as an example for this scenario.

    1. "Kitten.jpg" lives on your computer at home, it was a picture that you took of your cat in 2012. Thatís one copy of the data.

    2. You also have an external hard drive that you use for backing up your computer, if youíre on a Mac, you might be using it as a Time Machine drive. As part of its backup process, that external hard drive will back up "Kitten.jpg". Thatís a second copy, on a different device or medium.

    3. In addition that external hard drive, you also have an online backup solution. The online backup continuously scans your computer and uploads your data offsite to a datacenter. "Kitten.jpg" is included in this upload, and that becomes the third copy of your data.

    I have 3 USD hdds I use for backups, 2 of which are off site at all times.
    That is 16 plus years of Family Genealogy work I would hate to have 600 GB of data to just disappear.

    The importance to you, of your data, dictates how many backups you have.
    Notice I said nothing of my kids, brothers and sisters or cousins that have copies either.

    True image has also a hidden partition? or section option. Lost it when i had a hdd-problem with overlapping partitions!
    i can see it being present(as signal) on the actual fresh hdd.
