    If the data is really important to you back it up to as many mediums as possible.

    There is no "best" way.

    If I had really important data, which i wanted for 20 years time, I would back it up to archival grade DVD's.

    But in the meantime back-up to iCloud AND then buy an external HDD and backup to that as well.

    Alright thanks so DVDs would be the most reliable.
    I don't think I'll use cloud then if I already have it on hdds and disks it doesn't seem worth paying for.
