Default Backing up Hollywood Orchestra

Since most of Hollywood Orchestra comes on a regular EW hard drive (with only Hollywood Percussion as a download option) we copy these files to SSD drives for playing purposes. Also, we backup the EW hard drive (and any additional downloads such as Hollywood Cello or Violin) to another hard drive for security purposes. But is that sufficient ?

I guess it depends on your contingency plan. I have a backup of all libraries on two drives in my studio. And as a last resort, I have a backup of the libraries, plus all of my important data, on a hard drive that's in a safety deposit box at my bank (I get one free with my account). I know it sounds overkill, but I can't imagine losing 20+ years worth of music and other important files (family photos, documents, etc). I'm also looking into some sort of cloud backup subscription.

A related query if I may.
When we download from the IC, the libraries are not only downloaded but also installed.
In other applications like Continuata (for Kontakt downloads) you can choose to keep the original downloads (for backup) after install.
But how do we do this with EastWest?
Or should we just backup the installed files?
