No, not the PBS Show from the 80s.

If you want to verify there’s safe and secure copies of your work/files, this rule is the easiest, best method, and cost effective.

2 copies on different external devices (flash drives, dvd-r, or external hdd usually)

1 copy off site (Dropbox, or some other server)
