How much DATA do you think you will need to backup in the next 24 months?
It isn't going to be a great deal, but I was thinking about maybe 3* 2TB HDD's. One for a direct daily backup from my laptop, one to do weekly backups of the daily backups, and one to do monthly backups of the weekly backup. 2TB is way more than I will need, but it will mean I can keep everything I back up as it will always be handy to keep hold of, and it will also mean that I should not exceed my my back up limits.
Regarding RAID though, I have heard that it is very unstable and you are prone to losing data as a result so was just planning on having 3 separate HDD's set up as I said above.
