Great question... I just noticed last week that I'm eating up a lot of
space on my main system...... 15 GB. as I've put CDs and cassettes on
it. Perhaps I'll add another ? gb drive (as prices are dropping and move
them to it... This would be faster and as I add cd's to the ARCHOS I'd
have them backed up there.

[Not Rockbox related topic]

I was wondering, does anyone keep the contents of the Archos HDD backed
up on their computer? Or do you put all your music on the Archos and if
it ever fails, it just fails and you convert all your CDs to MP3 again?

So this really is a question of reliability of the Archos HDD.

I hardly play MP3s on my computer, although I have the best imaginable
sound system connected to it (M-audio Delta66 sound interface, fully
digital mixing desk, 2 near field studio monitors). So I thought about
freeing the HD space, so I won't have to get a new HD soon. Putting the
20 GB on CDRs is hardly do-able.

I remember converting most of my CDs to MP3, averaging two or three a
day, letting the computer run at night. So it was about two months of

So what are your methods?
