The old fashioned way to back up files is to save them to DVD or an external hard-drive. The disadvantages of using an external hard-drive is that you have to remember to actually do this regularly, and make sure you then store your backups off-site in case of fire. At the very least you should store them in a fireproof safe, and a hard drive can still be damaged if you drop it.
The new wave of online tools offer both secure storage using 128-bit level military grade encryption, and collaborative workspaces for sharing files between remote teams, friends or family.
