multiple layers of backup.  My main system has a main system.  With scheduled backups to an external hard drive, and online.  I have a lot of data on it like pictures that I wouldn't want to lose.  A SSD would replace my main boot drive, with faster access to data as used.  But the external drive would still be there for backup.
