I use a combination of local and cloud storage to store my files. I have an external hard drive that my iMac uses as a backup every week. I use cloud storage for many of my personal projects. I even have a dozen or so thumb drives I use to store photos, videos and other files. Keeping track of all the various forms of storage is in itself complicated but it helps keep my data safe through redundancy.
