I burn them off to CDs/DVDs and keep them in my case. This is probably bad as the CD/DVD's will "erode" over time, even though they are in the case. This was also around the time when I didn't have the luxury of a hard drive with space over 60GB.

I should probably start keeping the images on an external hard drive like everyone else. Ah, at least it'll now give me another reason to go get one.

Store Betas? I burn 'em to CDs, then throw them in binders.

Normally, I just store 'em on my HDD. Sometimes I burn them...

Up until now, I have burned them all to CD/DVD. Not exactly the most cost effective way....but I do hope to be putting them back on my desktop because I have been buying up hard drives for that machine recently (yay terabyte!)

Just hope the CDs/DVDs don't rot by the time I get to copying everything!

I have partitioned my 500GB into 5 100GB partitions and compressed all my betas into RAR files, next I put all of the RAR files into a folder and compressed that folder into a RAR
