If I still did that, I'd need to build a new room to house them! You're going to need to buy more shelves alongside that harddrive!

Something to consider (although I still haven't got this together and there's masters involved with me!) - hard drives DO fail (but so do burned discs!) and drives are relatively cheap. Buy two of them, and backup the files to BOTH drives. Then, take one and store it away from the other one - like at someone else's house, a safety deposit box, wherever. That way, if something really bad happens, you'll still have your files!
