After some research, I think I've found my ideal backup solution. It involves me:
- Manually creating a Macrium Reflect encrypted image file of my data once a week
- Storing the encrypted image file to two external HDDs
- Placing the external HDDs in two different (safe) physical locations

Instead of getting a four-bay Firewire enclosure, could I just get a cheap PC case and use that to build a RAID? [more inside]
I have three 160 gig hard drives full of Apple Lossless music that I've ripped from my CDs. I want to keep these drives backed up, obviously. Is the most cost effective route to just buy a 500 gig (or ideally, one TB) drive for this purpose? Are there enclosures that hold multiple hard drives that would be appropriate (and cost effective) for this use? With the deals out there, it seems cheaper to buy more 160s than a 500 gig. I'm on a Mac G5.
