Confessions of a multimedia packrat

Subject: Systems | November 1, 2007 - 12:11 PM |

Just because your HTPC system is full to overflowing, even thought it has several terabytes of storage doesn't mean you have a problem.  All it means is that you have to figure out a way to organize all your files better.  OCModShop offers a suggestion on what to do as an alternative to actually deleting some of your favourite shows.

"I, like many Home Theater PC owners, simply don't have enough storage. Even though Terabyte hard drives are

available (and somewhat affordable), I still don't have enough. I have a dedicated seperate drive for music, one

for Recorded TV, another one for movies, another for photos, and another for High-Definition content... and

that's just ONE of my Media Centers!

The physical limitations of the drive also makes organizing difficult. I could mix my high-definition movies with

my normal Divx and X-vid movies, but I don't have a drive large enough to accomodate both. Sure, I could make a

simple JBOD array to make them a logical letter, but this will be a never-ending process of adding more drives to

my box until it is as noisy as a construction site."
