6. Beyond iTunes > 98. Back Up Your Digital Music Collection

Back Up Your Digital Music Collection

Hard drives don’t last forever, so it’s best to start thinking now how you can safely back up your digital tunes.

So, you’ve got your 1,000-CD collection ripped to your computer, as well as the 100 or so songs you’ve purchased from the iTunes Music Store. Your CDs have now all been given away or sold for a buck a piece (if you’re lucky) to a secondhand CD store. You are all digital, all the time! Good for you—until your hard drive decides to bite the dust. All that work converting your CDs and all those songs purchased are as good as gone. This hack will help you prepare for the inevitable. Hard drives do crash, and when they do, you want to make sure you have your music backed up somewhere safe.
