Not that exceptional. I have a PC with a JBOD 40TB space, Plus 3NAS boxes with 40TB of available storage in each. Not all the space is occupied, but just yesterday I had to transfer just under 1TB from 1 NAS that had only 3.65GB space left on it. My PC's music is backed up to 1 of the NAS boxes. The other 2 NAS boxes each have about 30TB of content not on the PC: 1 NAS is backed up to the other. I also have 10TB of my most important music backed up to a cloud service.Yeah I get all that [as I explained, I work in IT]. What I don't understand is how an average surround music consumer has 60TB of data. You're kinda the exception to the rule.
I use WDPR4100 Nas Boxes (4 bays populated with 4x12TB WD RED HDDs in 1 big space because redundancy is having the other same NAS with the same content copied to it ). I make instant, small backups, to stay on top of it all. As soon as I have new content, say an album ripped to my PC, the moment I have completed all that I want to do with that 1 album's folder I copy it to 1 of the NAS boxes. If it is really important I aslo upload that 1 album to my cloud storage. So backup is small at any time.
