    Has anyone had experience using cloud storage to store and access your music?

    Yeah - years ago I backed up my entire library to SkyDrive accounts - never used it since.

    With the price of external HD's these days, it is really not worth trying to upload stuff to archive. Just regularly back-up, and replace drives if they start to play up.

    My current DJ collection is in Dropbox. My Mac is backed up locally to Time Machine and a bootable clone drive every night.

    I also have Backblaze backing up my whole system.

    If I ever need to access any of my DJ tracks away from my machine I can use Dropbox or Backblaze online or on mobile.

    I have 4 TB available in my onedrive. Was thinking about moving all of my music over there and deejaying straight out of the skydrive.

    Rekrodbox performed okay. Took forever to load the tunes. Traktor would keep giving audio dropouts. Serato seemed to fair pretty well. Only had one issue witha track not being analyzed.

    Microsoft has just announced dramatic changes to their storage tiers, i'm not sure how you have 4TB but that is likely to change... paid plans are being dropped down to 1TB from the previous 'unlimited' offering... free plans are being reduced also.


    What do you mean 'DJ out of Skydrive' ? How can you load tracks that aren't physically on your device?

    I was going to ask the same question. I think I remember it being that skydrive just keeps a placeholder for the file on your drive and hen when you access it it retrieves the whole file? (have never used skydrive, but I think I read this somewhere).

    I store all of my music in dropbox, but those files are also located on my hard drive, so no different to normal. I would never rely on an internet connection to get me my music at a gig!

    Exactly, I can only assume he thinks putting his files into the Skydrive means they are only on Skydrive, which is not the case, they are still on his computer.

    Sounds like trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist.. Patch nailed it on: physical storage is cheap as chips these days... there is no reason to look for alternative solutions.
