My biggest pet peeve are DVD/Blu-Ray companies who choose to put their episodes out of order on the disks.
I'm looking at you Warner Bros. and your Justice League Unlimited Complete Series (among others)!
@emacsen I feel like if I follow this thread long enough I'll get the full story of your descend into madness as you get into more and more obscure scenarios trying to rip all your media 😂
It gets worse when you get to the DVD's with horrible encoding that takes forever to transcode into something re-playable and you end up spinning up a giant server in some cloud to do it faster 😅
@rune It's not so bad. For DVDs, I'm simply using MakeMKV to rip them. With ~12tb of storage, I can go ahead and keep them in their original form.
For the Blu-Rays, I have decided to run some post-ripping re-encoding.
I don't own any more CDs, sadly. They were lost in a series of bad situations.
@emacsen Ah, that should keep you afloat for a few weeks 😄
Are you doing any kind of RAID or a separate backup?
I can't be bothered to back mine up, but I've had a few disks fail on me, so I always keep redundancy through RAID.
