While I consider myself as quite advanced computer user, recently I almost lost all my pictures. My slave drive, where all pics were stored suddenly died after unexpected power outage with no signs of trouble or any warnings. Yes, I definitely has backup, but the backup drive appeared to be solid dead as well, when I tried to recover the valuable information. Statistical probability that both drives will die at the same time is quite low, but it exist as you see. Frankly, it took me several months and multiple data recovery tools to get all the pictures back, but I learned the lesson. You need to have double and triple backup for your valuable data. And, one of the components of the secure solution should be server, located remotely and is not physically present at your home. That will preserve the information in case of fire or any natural disasters.
