SSD or HDD for storage?

I want to backup all of my images and videos for my sim story that I have taken over the years, but I was just wondering what is more reliable for the long-term for the purpose of just storage, a SSD or a HDD.

    Both SSDs and HDDs will fail with time, but an SSD has no moving parts that can break. An HDD would be a lot cheaper if you have many TB of data... I think it's best to store important data on multiple storage devices. My Sims stuff is on an SSD, and I have backups on an internal HDD and an external HDD. I'm thinking of getting a USB-stick with enough space for my important files.

    You should always have backups on some kind of external device that you don't keep plugged in to anything. A lightning strike nearby could wipe out all data on your computer and devices that are plugged in, poof, just like that.
