Bioinformtatics data integrity

Recently I have been tidying up data for my research projects in NUS. This process of dealing with a few TBs of data in one day made me slightly paranoid of the integrity of the data: where should they be stored, which archiving + compresssion protocal should be used, which local/remote file transferring algorithms should be used and even what kind of media - should they be transferred via USB or ethernet.
