Importance of an offsite back-up

I recently replaced my Hard Disk with an SSD drive to speed up my computer’s performance. I had two extra hard drives laying around and I thought I’d pair them together in a RAID setup to increase performance… problem was those two drives consisted of my primary back-up as well as a redundant secondary back-up drive. Fortunately I keep multiple back ups of my most important files at home as well as on offsite services such as drop box. Family members have copies of family videos, pictures and recordings. Unfortunately, due to their large data size, my own video and photo collection were stored only on these two drives. I’ve been able to recover most all files… but a small portion of data is forever lost due to being written over. A reminder to back-up your data.
