That would be better, but I'm not sure I'm willing to spring for the  
added security over the relative cheapness of 1 main drive, 1 backup  
drive, and (of course) the original CDs in most cases.

However, I would guess that online storage will itself eventually  
become more affordable, too, and that would be a good extra line of  
security for the future.
