That used to be how I handled things, but it is hard to do daily
backups that way.

A stack of DVDs in an office drawer IS my solution for photos/etc that

accumulate a DVD's worth of data, then I back it up to multiple DVDs
and exclude that chunk from online backups.  That gives me daily
backups, but also keeps the cloud repository to a very inexpensive
