Backup data only, no need to backup programs

I am also not comfortable with online backup, and physical storage is cheap

For desktop machines, I order them with 2 HDD that are setup in a RAID 1 where one
drive mirrors the other. If 1 drive fails, you replace it and lose nothing (including programs)

I store all data on a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. The NAS is backed up to multiple places daily including my desktop so I can get to anything quickly if necessary.
