There is no single perfect back-up method and none of the currently available kinds of storage media will last forever. Things can 'disappear' from the internet (for various reasons) and you may also not be able to access it when you need to (for various reasons).

I use multiple methods to back-up my hard, or impossible, to replace data and store stuff in multiple places. Back in the day, I even used tape! I'm glad that technology has gone the way of the Dodo bird.

The point is to make back-ups and make as many and as often as you deem necessary after reviewing the risks. The time and cost investment making back-ups can seem like a waste of time and money, but it beats losing stuff forever or spending more time and money trying to replace things.
