Have you done a backup recently?

Oh boy do I...  Lets see I have the master here in my desktop, that syncs to the two drives in the server and to my NAS, which is both fire and waterproof. That backs up to an identical NAS at my brothers house. The most likely failure is a HDD, that I can recover from in seconds and be back to playing music. The other methods take consecutively more time. If I lose all backups, my music collection will be the least of my problems.

Okay, you got me.

I don't have a nearby bank, but if I did I'd keep a copy in a safe deposit box and switch it with an updated copy once every two weeks or a month.

I'm hoping one of these days cloud based storage is cheap enough that I can put a copy in the cloud. All the relatively reasonable alternatives I've found seem to be quite expensive.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

The issue for me with cloud storage is not cost but the time to get my close to 4TB up- and downloaded.  That’s several weeks here at my current average internet speed.
 

Sounds like my place will finally get an optical fiber connection at some point in 2021. Then we’re talking.

I recently ran out of space on the LVM volume group I use for backups.

 

Turns out you can get storage much cheaper if you "shuck" the drive - i.e. take an external hard drive enclosure and remove the internal hard drive.

 

Here are my findings, plus an addition after I realised it wasn't quite so technical simple - physical hack required!
