    Default Cloud vs HD for storage

    Welp, the time has come for me to invest in a backup for my backup..

    I'm currently looking at some Western Digital clouds and I'm curious if these are any good/reliable? I like the idea of wireless compared to a hard wire, but I've never had a cloud so I'm not sure if they're buggy or what...

    Anyone have a cloud of any kind? Would you recommend it over a wired HD? Any input is appreciated!

    Im still wary over wireless technology. The intelligent side of me tells me there will be no issue sneding the data wirelessly, but the nostalgic side of me tells me not to trust the new technology.

    The old saying in IT is this:

    Your data doesnt exist unless you have it backed up in three separate places. Youve already lost it all, its just a matter of time.

    Ive seen this to be true over and over.

    So the answer is cloud AND external hard drive, and something else.

    ^ This.

    My stuff is on my gigging laptop and replicated on my big desktop rig and on an external HDD. Can't be arsed with Cloud, plus I don't trust it either. I tend not to do wireless anything, not even internet if I can help it.
    Live rig: Denon Prime (5000M's)
    Retired: Denon x1700, Denon SC3900's, Traktor, Technics SL1200's, my vinyl
    Wish list: Some Roland Aira stuff.
