To supplement backup devices, purchased 1TB WD USB 3.0 drive from Staples ($59.99). I added a minor item to the purchase to get it over 59.99. Then added a $30 coupon code from a mailer that I received in the US Mail.

I have an external USB 2.0 adapter that I use with internal drives. However, it appears that the USB 3.0 external drives with 1TB are less than a single 3.5 internal drive now.

I use open source software called "Duplicatti" to backup all my documents (all kept in 1 special directory). It pre-encrypts using AES and a long key that only I have, then uploads all the encrypted files to cloud services: Dropbox, box.com, Google drive, and Microsoft one drive.

Think I'll give it a try. I have a lot of unused google drive space.

I do a system image backup to a thumb drive when computers are first set up. The thumb drives go into their own folder in a file cabinet. I then use an rsync script to back up user directories and files to an in-house backup server every day. (Rsync for Windows is obtained through minimal install of Cygwin.) The backup server runs rsnapshot/rsync to make incremental backups every night. I also backup pictures and important documents to box.com.
