Hi Brian

Many thanks for your  very detailed  advice.  I need to  think  carefully  about  what  you  wrote

I do  in fact  have  what  I  think  you  mean  by a  mirrored   drive   (NAS) :  it's  a  box  with  2  x  2TB  discs  that  mirror  each other

The  problem is that  it  communicates   with my lap tops  via my  home  wifi,   and my  data base  in  800  GB,  so  a  back up  takes  days    ( !  )

I  suspect  that     using the  cloud  would   have the same  problem  be  the same  because   of  using  wifi  to  communicate .

Now I'm using a  2TB  WD-brand  Passport  for  back-up, which  is  connected    directly to my  main lap top    using a  high-speed  USB,    but  even  that  needs  3  -4  hours  for a back-up
