    Game Backups

    1)I don't want hundreds of No-CD exes.
    2)I don't want a million ghost drives and partitions on my hard drive.

    I just need a way to cut down on the amount of space that my game CDs and DVDs take up. I was thinking about putting several games on a DVD, but that doesn't really save much space, as most games are 3-4 CDs now anyway.

    Is there a good solution? Should I make a some sort of NAS and make a huge RAID array with a partition for each game? Can I run a game over a 100 mbps like that? I was thinking about making a huge CD server.... like 15 or 20 drives, but that is hard to make room for. Thoughts? It's just these CDs are taking up too much room in my bedroom.

    Well, one sol'n for you if you don't wanna constantly swap out cd's and don't wanna use no-cd patches, then check out Daemon tools ( http://www.daemon-tools.cc ). For non-comercial use, it'll emulate upto 4 cd drives for which a cd image of the origanol cd on the hard drive exists.
