I've been wracking my brain for weeks trying to find a cheap and effective way to backup my, at the moment, 1.5TB of mainly TV Shows. All of these are perfectly named with cover art for the seaons and importing great into Meedio. So my biggest worry of course is what happens if I get a power surge, fire or maybe one of my roommates accidentaly deletes everything. You get the gist. All very unlikely but I want to prepare for the worst. So here's where I'm at. First I looked into Tape Backup. The only reason being is that I work for an IT company and they have replaced all there current 10-30gb tapes with 300gb tapes. Well my biggest issue with these is that the drives to read and write to them are horrendously expensive. Second I though harddrives and just leave them in storage. The problem I see with this is that it's very expensive and I'm already crunched for space and could use that extra money for more harddrives...server etc. Well I've come down to the conclusion I might just have to suck it up and get a nice 16x DVD-Burner maybe the Plextor-704A and just spend hour after horrible hour backing things up. I can get a pack of 100 Ridata discs for about $35. Not bad for over 400GB of space. So have I thought this through enough? Is there an easier way? CAn I build a more automated dvd-backup system? Any ideas would be great, cause I'm out.
