    Yup, I do the friend thing too. LoL
    Only the paranoid stay safe. LoL

    To me that does not matter...if someone discusses an album or track, I like the fact that I have a high chance of having it in my library to go review. Streaming is nice, but you don't own the Cloud, the Cloud "owns" you. Heheheh

I use the Synology version of RAID 5 (called SHR) which allows you to mix and match drive sizes. The box has 12 drives which I have completely populated with 8TB drives. Synology has a system where it is constantly monitoring the health of the drives (bad segments, etc) and sends a message when the drives are getting weak, so you can replace them before they fail. I have about 60TB of music files, including the 40TB from my giant ripping project (10,000 vinyl and tape albums at 192/24). In addition to the Synology Raid backup, I have two completely separate sets of backups, on external drives. One is at home and the other in two big safe deposit boxes in the local bank. Really important point made earlier that the Box itself can fail, or get infected, taking more than one drive down, so external backups are mandatory.

    Hate to thread crash, but your inbox is full and cannot accept messages. FYI
