Cloud storage for the thrifty.
Hard drive technology continues to improve, making denser local storage possible at cheaper prices. Risk for catastrophic data loss increases, though, when a storage solution remains local. The best mitigation is to synchronize all files to a cloud storage service.
If you do not wish to pay for a cloud storage service, and you have friends that feel the same way, you can pool and distribute your storage using Aloft.
