[QUOTE=NBR;1913695]@ gaiko … jesus christ man! 470 discs? wtf are you burning, the entire internet? lol
p.s. just had to say something cause 470 discs is ALOT especially for DVD recordables
but anyways more on topic… i would pretty much agree with cd pirate as the 2 backups on 2 different brands of discs (verbatim/ty) would be great if the data is CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE type data … but since u got 470+ discs already burned… doing 2 backups is probably out of the question for you.
also it might not be a bad idea in your case since you have SOOOO much data to backup onto 1 set of discs like u already did and then use a external hard drive and make a backup onto that… cause i figure the odds of that external hdd failing and the discs are probably pretty slim
but then again if i calculated that right your already over 2TB worth of data … so the hard drive option might get expensive since to get that much storage without a using a billion hard drives it would get rather expensive just getting something like 2 1TB hard drives.
but damn, not that it’s any of my business but what exactly do you have that you actually NEED 470discs of critical data? ;)[/QUOTE]
Heh, yeah its a sh*t load of stuff, but I’ma RAW photo, Panoramic (largest is a 3 gb panoramic .psb) Flac music, and HD video freak so the GBs add up quickly. Critical is of course subjective but i really don’t want to loose this stuff, it took me forever to rip all my CDs (100s) to FLAC I backed up most of my DVDs (not 100s but enough to be sure) and so on so there is alot of time invested here.
Yeah considerin the number of disks it would take me a dogs age to make backups.
As for the external drive, i have been seriously considering two hitachi/seagate/westernd 1tb drives and the D-Link DNS-323 but i was still hoping to use a separate media like dbl lyr DVDs or BD or HDDVD…
You are right about the 2tb and all the options i mentioned above would cost serious (for my measly budget) money; like $600+
