Seeing as you all have such large collections, what method of backing music do you guys use? (Please tell me you back up! :) )

I wonder those of you who have tens of thousands of files, how many of them are ever listened to? even once?

I have "only" 7000 tracks and many of them have been listened to less than 5 times in the last year.

I don't have a massive collection (about 7,000 tracks - 50GB) but in addition to my MP3 player (Nomad Jukebox 3 /w 80GB HD) I have two external USB drives to synchronize the mp3 folder on the computer. I use a program called Karen's Replicator (http://www.karenware.com/powertools/ptreplicator.asp to do the synchronizing.

I have over 30,000+ files, with some CDs still to be ripped.

I have listened to every single track in my library at least once, probably more often. This is due mainly to the fact that I listen to music constantly during work, which means 8+ hrs a day.

As for backing up, I use CD-Rs, burning two copies as they are so cheap. Although I don't bother backing up anything I've ripped from my own collection (except my kids' CDs, as they tend to get the crap knocked out of them).

One fear I have is that I'll put all this work into a nice library, then lose a hard drive (it's happened once already) only to have to start over.

Cross your fingers. :)

Currently sitting on about 32,000 songs @ 105 Gig alot is 64k but I am trink to replace that. I have about 7 Gig on my laptop that I lisen to on a regular basis. The rest is for DJ use and bragging rights :wink:
For back up I keep two copies of sepperate hard drives in you tower, one copy on a hard drive in the retail box and static bag, and about half is backed up on dvd-r & cd. I had a bad run with hard drives recently, three crashed on one DJ gig :o :( :evil: (bad power supply for external drive enclsoure)
I know use a dedicated mid tower with removable drives, much more forgiving, less to go wrong, and it mounts inside my Gig Rig.

I thought I was doing good at 3000+ tracks @ 21 GB. But after reading the posts here I feel humbled ;)

You know, it would be cool if that statistics feature showed the total length in days, weeks, months, and years. I mean I have no clue off the top of my head how long 307 hours of music is.
