For fgh

What is the BBS you are talking about ?

There's a way for you to share this backup ?

It's a personal decision of course, but it would be really kind from you

Hope my english is correct

The Amiga TOSEC-ISO collection is about 350gb on it's own.

Yeah, I don't really download CD32 / CDTV / AmigaCD .ISO files; only for the ones that are interesting and I'd actually play at some point

I don't have any ISO at all ( only DMS, ADF, ZIP, RAR, LHA, LZX, EXE )

I also collect Amiga-related stuff. Must be something that is hard-wired in most of us, amigans. It's probably akin to the "collector's brain", though for me it's only the Amiga that has this charm. I don't collect anything else.

My first experience with emulation was with the MS-DOS version of Callus, a CPS1 emulator, still in the gone days of the previous century. My first experience with a workable Amiga emulation was with WinUAE 8.8r8, back in 1999 if I'm not mistaken...

My emulation Amiga collection has only 30GB (ADF, ISO, LHA, LZX and loose files). I focus more on games, though, rather than demos or programs (though I have a few of both). I have only one version of each game, safe for very few exceptions. I also have a penchant for rare software and for hoarding things that I once wanted but for some reason couldn't get, back in the day.

My hardware Amiga collection consists of 6 Amigas (3x A500, 1x A600 and 2x A1200). Every A500 has a 512kb trapdoor RAM expansion and one of them has a Gotek. Both A1200 have ACA boards (one has a 1220 and the other a 1221) with a 4GB CF HDD for the Commodore with 3.X ROMs and an 8GB CF-HDD for the Escom with 3.1 ROMs. The Commodore A1200 has a Gotek. I also have 4 Rys USB MKII adapters, several RGB-SCART adapters, two CF-PCMCIA adapters, numerous joysticks, 3 Commodore "tank" mice and 3 Amiga Technology mice, 3 Monitors (1084S-D2, 1084S-P1 and 1085S-D3) and about 200 disks with games and a few programs (antivirii, X-Copy, etc).

Cheers!

I tend to collect the real stuff I guess, that is the physical elements that were created around the Amiga platform. Never really seen the point in digital emulation... bit like food with no taste. Just my point of view. I can find anything on the web so that really isn't a challenge.



As for the real data I dread to think just how much stuff I really have. But for starters I have over 13000 DD Amiga floppy disks. All catalogued.


http://www.scuzzscink.com/amiga/scuz...uly18_0114.htm


You do need the space though ... I also have most of the CDs released with various Amiga magazines. Its endless really. As for data retrieved from the net that's all in the Amiga Repository on a PC server I have here networked to all the computers.


My disk collection is a massive file, but I generally can find a disk within a couple of minutes.

I only collect the games I used to love in the 90s complemented with the ones I always wanted to have.

I own several hundreds ADFs plus several hundreds HDFs. I love HDFs. The only reason for keeping ADFs are cracktros and trainers.

(Thanks to Ransom1122 and DamienD for perfecting my collection.)

I also collect Demos. But I am special with that. I use to keep them in Mp4 format. So I can watch them everywhere, even just right now in hotel in Cambodia via Dropbox. I own 108 numerical, my favourites only, mostly in HD.

Furthermore I love Amiga music from games, cracktros and demos. I have several thousands. For maximum compatibility I store them in Mp3 format.

My collection is little compared to others, but I know and love every file of it.

Exactly !

The reason why i collect all this stuff is for cracktros / trainers / intros / demos

My small demo collection ( called Amiga Demoscene Archive aka ADA ) must increase

like, about 16GB.
I have my HDD image (4GB, clone/backup of my real amiga 1200)
I have the "full sets" of WHDLoad games and demos, an SPS disk image set and the rest is mostly stuff I've accumulated of interest (pictured is what windows says is being used)

45.3Gb spread across 104 000 files.

- A bunch of HDF hard disk image files for my actual system and WinUAE
- A couple of HDF AmigaSYS images for Amiga Forever
- About 3300 Amiga software ADF's, zipped
- About 1000 MOD/Symmod/other tracker tunes
- 1Gb of demos, LHA and WHD
- 6Gb of games

Amiga forever and other hard disk image files take 26Gb of the total space. Compared to many of you, seems like I've barely got anything. But this is my actual Amiga collection dozens of times over, size-wise.

To put it in perspective, if you had to guess: How large was your actual Amiga collection in megabytes? I'm thinking mine was right around 0.5Gb (700+ disks) at its largest.
