What Do You Use When Storing Music?

Do you use microSD cards? External hard drives? Solid state drives? U.S.B. drives? Cloud service? Something else?

Most of my music is streamed over Apple Music, but for my bought music, I store them on a NAS with mirrored drives for redundancy. Synology also allows me to index my music folder as an iTunes library, so I can easily stream it. A VPN in the NAS also allows me to remotely access these files.

I use USB drives, the best solution for my needs - I can have all my music files on portable and reliable device without a need for internet access.

I save it to my PC, back it up to a external drive, and if I ever got around to it I’d also back it up to my living room PC

I use a NAS in raid 5.1 for some security as my main storage at home. I use it for music, photos, documents etc. I also have a 8tb external drive that i use for backup of the most important stuff (although i am too lazy, and it gets updated way less often than it should).

I also keep a copy of my music on my desktop pc, but my laptop and media PC and other devices all use the NAS as their storage. That said, i mostly use spotify for the convenience and the possibility to “cast” the music to other devices, but when i sit down and really listen, i tend to use foobar and the flac files on my NAS :slight_smile:

I store my music on a Synology NAS and back everything up to Backblaze. Plex runs on my NAS so I can play/sync music on the go. A copy of the music Library is replicated to my Roon Core for playback in the house.

The typical way of storaging my music and tracks would be the use of the HDD that I still have since 2016 and my god it’s still working just fine. Also I use a 128GB microSD from my phone to store my favorite tracks and albums as well, for I cannot always full rely on streaming, for I still prefer tracks that I own or at least “borrowed” to be in a storage.

Also I envy my dad’s albums for most of them are a physical collection and some of them are in vinyl, therefore he actually owns those.
