Here's something I've never heard, I keep one of my backups on the sd card in my camera.
I also have a really old 512mb sd card that I keep in my real wallet, so I have my wallet in my wallet, lol.
of course stupid amounts of redundancy are best used for your savings account. My public wallet is only backed up in a few easy to access places because you need to back it up more frequently.

Me too and just pledged 30 btc once they start accepting them.

Truecrypt is truly one of the highest-quality programs out there. A pleasure to use, and surely worth a few coins.

To the topic; I keep my coins on my desktop client, backed up on 2 other hard drives. But I just bought a fresh USB stick which I plan to make a savings account on, to put in my safe.

True crypt and creating copy is no way. True crypt install disk and while it trojan can steal. Only way is working on encrypted by _bitocon_client_ file wallet.dat. If not yet this secure client version, can keep on mybitcoin or Mt Gox parts of money.

You encrypt only copy? To security client _must_ work on encrypted wallet, only client must known password, encrypted partitions by TryCrypt is insufficient.

As another point of redundancy:

This guy advertises himself as "online backups for the truly paranoid".

http://www.tarsnap.com/

The guy is kind of a math and crypto whiz.  He used to be Security Officer of FreeBSD; don't know whether that's the case still.  He's cperciva at Hacker News.  His personal website:

http://www.daemonology.net

Given his pricing policy:

Quote
Tarsnap has no fixed or minimum monthly fees!

Tarsnap is billed only based on actual usage — if you only store a small amount of data, a $5 payment might last you for years.

I bet he could be convinced to take bitcoins.

[Disclaimer: I don't know the man nor am associated with him in any way.  I have never used his service and I can't vouch for it first hand.  It just seems an obvious fit for this thread.]

My whole hard drive is encrypted. For backups I encrypt the wallet then put on a stick. The file I'm emailing is encrypted.

Maybe I'm missing something but you can save your BTC in _ the vacuum of space.

1) Install a client on a spare machine. Generate one bitcoin address and save the wallet.dat file. Put that wallet.dat somewhere safe (for example on a USB stick in a bank). You should of course have multiple safe copy.

2) Send any money you want to save to the address. That's it.


The day you will need that money, you will of course have to find back one of the copy of the wallet.dat file and run it through a client. All your savings should miraculously appear!

That's correct. You only have to access your savings wallet to spend coins, not deposit. Though, you're not storing anything in the vacuum of space, just the block chain (essentially, other people's computers).

It was just a poetic license ;-)
