I've mostly gone to the dark side and have things in the cloud.
All of my MI spreadsheets, scripts, myriad pictures, videos, docs etc, probably 90% of which could be deleted anyway.
(how many stupid cat videos does one need? I guess when you have kids, you need all of them plus more every day).
The only thing I don't have there are old tax returns, which I just put on an external HDD.
I even use an online password manager now, although an offline one like Keepass might be smarter but more complicated.

I have a buddy who long ago put his huge CD collection into some super high fidelity gigantic audio files.
He has some fancy RAID setup for storing, backing up, and accessing it.
I just use ** music service, and for really old LP's that aren't streaming, fire up the record player.

I really would rather that I had all my stuff to myself with my own backups but I've turned out to be too lazy for all that effort.
