If you have 10.000 images, and you want to save 3 copies of each image, that's a whole lot of memory !

I have approx 200,000 images and they are stored on 300 or so discs (38 CD-Rs, 12 DL-DVDs, 3 Blue Ray DVDs and the rest DVD-Rs). Plus Hard Drives. Yes its a lot of discs to have to organize but its better than loosing my photos.
