DVD's don't get viruses. HDD do. 1 bad virus and bye bye forever to your pictures!

You don't have a single copy on a single HD. You would have a copy on the computer, and another copy on a removable disk. The risk of a virus wiping both out is minimal providing you take reasonable care not to get viruses in the first place.

This is why I don't use Raid: Viruses and delete-operations just wipe both HDs at once. If you do time-based backup (e.g. once a week) you have a grace-period before desaster can strike at your backup disk.
