Wow. Really? I think youre overthinking/making it WAY harder than it is. When I back up to it, I drag and drop the folder, name it, burn it, lightscribe a label on it, put it in an envelope and store it. It literally takes 2 minutes of my time because I can do other office work while the disc is taking 10 minutes to write. Id rather have a box of Blu Ray discs than a box of hard drives.

A physical hard disk drive gives you much better cost/GB now,

The cost is about the same. 3tb drive is 3000GB or 120 BD disk. Bulk media cost less than a $1 per disk (I just paid $40 for 50 TDK) so 120 disks is about $120 or less which is the same as 3TB HD.

If one of your HD crashes you just lost 3TB worth of data.

So, for that reason I back up to HD and 2 BDs with one BD off-site.
