Worried that you are going to hacked after this NHS attack? :D

Personally i would go for 3 backups one in the cloud if you think thats necessary then 2 separate portable hard drives in case one fails.Thereby if one hard drive fails just go buy another one.

NAS in a mirrored RAID configuration and backed up to cloud.
Personally use Synology NAS with 2 HDDs and backed up to Amazon ice cloud storage.

2 external drives and then a cloud backup (Google/Amazon/Ms) will have you covered

I've got a portable hard drive and Google drive seems to work well

I presume you're using secure in the sense of preventing access by other people?

If you want something to be secure online then you can encrypt it yourself. That way even if the online host is compromised the data is still secure until the key is acquired from you or your computer.

Would agree on three-point system for belt and braces backups on assumption of necessity for one of the hard drives to be kept at a different location to both the other portable drive and the original data, but not in the instance for OP who is looking for the most secure option that by definition necessitates the minimum numbers of copies to be available.

Anyone with xp now then consider duel booting with Linux mint. I just wiped all my Microsoft pcs and loading Linux on years ago. Dual booting will sort most out though
