I use git for version control even on small / one guy projects and it has saved my bacon more times than I can count.

Public / open source projects all go up on github for (free) backup and distribution at the same time.  It's easy to back up private projects to private web space.  Couldn't be simpler.

The Arduino team is using github in a very transparent and open way to develop, track issues, and document the core.  So there are other reasons for people who hang out here to be on github as well.

I use dropbox to store all my arduino & Eagle stuff, have it on the 3 machines that I use the most (none on the same local network) and can also access from my mobile phone.

This works perfectly for me and saves me carrying a USB flash drive around smiley

I second the idea of version control - you might also look into GIT (plus the various free repositories out there, like GIThub).

I also think that using a NAS (particularly one with RAID), as well as Google Drive and/or Dropbox would be beneficial as well; if this code is important to you, you can't have too many backups.

Somehow I doubt that ....  I recall searching through a dozen backup floppies to find the latest version smiley

For the young people, a floppy is an offline storage device, seldom seen since dawn of the internet - see wikipedia
