1. how to keep? Buy harddrives... many, many TB's (TO's)... many, many!
2. up-to-date? Rommanager, dats, creeping the net, then ask for missing files here. (fixdat ofcourse!)
just not to be bad, i just proclaim to not to use search anymore for others than myself. Its easy. If you got almost fullsets, your missings are often posted together in one.

Damn these are huge.


I am only using these two "systems".


1) An SBS2011 server with FlexRAID. A 500GB disk for OS and "running" data. A second 500GB disk for daily backup. 10 x 3TB disks (can individually swap sizes and ended up in this setup until I slowly move towards bigger disks), one of them used as parity. Hold my emulation stuff along other stuff. Accessible over shares on the network, which is why I much prefer portable solutions (no registry, relative paths and even better if support UNC paths).


2) A laptop with 2x USB 4TB disks, seeding the torrents off the USB disks that are also used over network as actually working/usable emulation stuff (plus a couple "non usable" only seeding off the internal disk).


Around once a month those two systems sync together Emulation stuff (with the server being mostly destination).

i dont collect bigger sets. PS2, PS3 and everything newer. I also dont collect systems which cant be used. Useless Data is .... erhm.... useless.
Have several WII, Xbox, and WII-U to test emulation-status.
I do store Tosec (+ISO), TruRip, ReDump (basic systems (up to under generation xbox)) on only about 26-30 TB.  8-8-4-4 and i think there's something more somewhere.
I also do not store it uncompressed or in weak compression-mode. If NASOS can be used, i highly recommend it to store files with this tool. (astounding tool!! i still dont get it how (why) this magic works!)

by the way:
i'm better off upgrading the system than invest into data-storage. my personal opinion. Yeah, one or two 8TB to backup sensitive data is on schedule.

Hello,

I do not have a lot of storage capacity anymore.
I was for 1 year at Amazon Drive, it was very good but they stopped the unlimited.
After a lot of research and testing, I went to google.
For 40 € per month you have unlimited drive. If you have 5 friends it will cost you 8 € per month
it takes a big bandwidth.
It's more expensive than the amazon drive but it works better.
Currently I am 40 TB
