I hope not but just in case, I'm clearing the contents onto other drives.

Never hurts to have backups if the stuff is important to you, right :)

What's the easiest & cheapest backup system as I have a total of 30TB external storage.

LOL .. are you after s 30TB backup solution on the cheap ;D
(depending on your definition of "cheap", that's unlikely to happen)

Or are you just looking for a software backup solution that can utilise your 30TB storage for the backups ? .. if so, what do you want to backup ?

Think I might have to invest in some new sizeable hard drives to specifically use as a backup system when I can afford to get some...
