Another way to save space is to use 7zip format instead of Zip format, my rom directory is only 30gigs, without the Mechanical and CHD files. Mechanical stuff is like 2 gig or so, 7zip saves quite a bit of space but does takes longer to load the game. Nice thing is CMPro set up was easy to do, CMP allows for different directories for different types.

One other thing to think of is todays "chaff" maybe tomorrows "wheat".
