when I was at university I used to have a pretty good strategy.
All my work was saved on my university file space,
all my work was copied via FTP to a PC at my parents house.
All my work was transferred using disks/USB disks.
if any one copy failed me there was two more.
if you're worried about a disk failing then use two disks.
Off line disks are more secure than on line connected disks, but only whilst their not connected.
if you really want to secure data from theft or prying eyes then encrypt it.
if you're worried that your data store will become corrupt or unreadable, then use multiple data stores.
