I have been digitalizing my DVD movie collection over the past year and I am using a DROBO 5N unit for this purpose. I am using iTunes and I can see my collection using Apple TV.


I would like to have a cloud backup of my collection which is about  6 TB in size so far (about 4500 movies). Can anyone recommend a cloud backup service for this size.

Crashplan is your only real option.

That said, do not do it. Remember: your localized storage of content you legitimately own is currently protected thanks to recent rulings.  But any transmission, even to yourself, of content is not.


Your best answer is just to have a local stored backup that you just file away.
