I have all the laptops here set to server the iTunes libraries and the iPhoto albums. I also have a tower that serves... I have not upgraded everything to Leopard yet, so I don't have Time Machine backing everything up that way yet - I did have some other ways of doing backups though, with a "cron job"...

I currently keep all my hard media in large 'books' of them and the front cover info, it really saves on space especially with nuge #'s of CD's. I would love to do this with all my movies as well, and likely will soon.


For me, my server is key, I will keep my actual media for ultra critical listening, but when I am cooking or just hanging with friends, I really don't need to have to change discs, and this is the key.

I have always sayed convienence is the king of reasons to upgrade formats, and to me the music server is a HUGE jump in convienence....

Few more discs and it is all over except the obligatory new back up and third coppy....
How much media did you transfer, and long did it take you? ( I take it that you are using 802.11n, but possibly 802.11g????)
