In 2022 how do I want to archive data for the long term, offline?

I currently just keep an old fashioned spinning hard drive (two, if I'm counting) in my safe deposit box, but storage has changed a lot in the last decade. What's the current wisdom for long-term (stable) data storage?
- Not stored on other peoples computers (The Cloud).
- Roughly a terabyte.
- Can be stored in a climate controlled box for a decade without power and still be expected to mount when plugged in.
- Will be accessible by whatever computer and OS I have in a decade.
- Is a couple hundred USD at most. (I'll likely buy more than one for redundancy.)
