IMO...those type files have no business in Docs & Settings. They probably belong in a separate partition.

I don't burn copies of such, I just store them on a separate hard drive, in a separate partition, same as I do my system backups.

What's the total space these things take up on your system?

Goto Newegg or Tiger Direct and buy a external hard drive w/ USB interface. Plug it in and copy your valuable stuff to it.

You'll need 20 CD's or more to burn that amount of music - and it's gonna take you a long, long time to arrange it so you can burn it all, then even more time to burn the actual CD.

A removable hard drive is the way to go! :thumbsup:
