Remote Offline Backup Solution

I am looking to backup all my important files on an HDD and give it to my brother to keep at his house. I want my backup to be offline. His home is far away enough that a natural disaster would not affect both our homes. I would update the backup yearly when we meet during the holidays. Thoughts?

So, I went shopping for a simple HDD, and reviews are warning me to avoid shingled drives (SMR). When I search for CMR drives, I am recommended NAS drives. Is that the kind of drive I really need for my purpose? I want a drive that will reliably store my data that I will access only once a year. I need about 4GB. What should I be considering?

  1. The main thing here is to keep multiple backup copies like in 3-2-1. I, personally, see no problem using an SMR drive for backups. Also, consider adding cloud storage.

  2. For your purposes, SMR is totally fine. Good resources for shopping drives: [https://diskprices.com/](https://diskprices.com/) and for general understanding and advice: [https://www.vmwareblog.org/shopping-hdds-notes-right/](https://www.vmwareblog.org/shopping-hdds-notes-right/)

  3. I would consider backing up to two drives and maybe doing it 6 months apart (that seems like a long time still but less than the year you are suggesting). Part of the idea here is that even when you are running a backup to a disk you will have a drive off site.

    Additionally, drives fail so it gives you a little safety if one of the drives go bad.

  4. SMR drives have slow write speeds but that is it. Can cause major issues when high write speeds are needed but for backups, they are often a valid option. There is no need to buy a NAS grade drive when you will only spin it for a few hours a year without some kind of RAID setup.

    Do you mean 4GB or 4TB?
