How do you store all the videos you create?

The better cloud services (MSFT, AWS, Google) run at 3x redundancy and have a 99.999999999% of object durability over a year. Your external hard drive has a significantly higher failure rate :)
I guess I have to rethink my storage plan then :sob:. Thank you for the info. I'm sure I will transfer to online but for now, I'm hoping these things survive

This is all super helpful. Right now I'm using Dropbox, but at some point I'd like to have externals or DVDs with them backed up, even if it's just the completed video and none of the media that put it all together. Because at some point, YouTube or Dropbox or whatever cloud service is going to disappear (I'm feeling cynical today - that's not a guarantee, of course) and I'll be happy to have them backed up on physical media.

I try to keep my videos small-sized without compromising on quality. Yes, I do keep backup on my local hard drives, I don't delete them as I don't want to. I don't have much space on my drives but will go for a couple of TB(s) when needed. But yeah won't go for cloud, don't trust them.

Have recently just after making 10 videos bumped into that issue myself.
It seems that 1TB is not enough for saving raw and exported footage.
Unfortunately right now I had to upload some to One Drive and delete some as I couldn't keep them all :sob:
