In this case Backup-DVDs would be a little bit better than backup-copies on USB-Sticks, because usually the DVDs are closed if they are nearly full, and then no malware can reach the DVDs anymore. But then they also cannot be updated, if new files should be added to a folder, and I myself add files to folders many times. At least the files could be copied back to the computer(s) after the reinstall of Windows, but only, if the computer(s), DVDs or removable drives are not destroyed by a fire, suddenly and unexpectedly.
Not only the malware is a problem. Suddenly a harddrive can also die (or the whole computer). It is a pain, if all images and songs have to be re-downloaded, and sometimes a song or image is not available anymore in the internet.
I myself have made already my final decision, that all my artist works should be for the eternity and be available in the internet forever in case I myself would suddenly die...
