Ok, so I started ripping 200 of 600 dvd's and it is starting to take up a lot of space for both the ripped discs on my external drive, and now the encoded file in iTunes, roughly on average 12-15GB per movie. I am using Apple TV defaults which work well. Some Ripped DVD's like Toy Story 3 take up to 80GB of disc space to rip. My question is does anyone just encode straight to disk and avoid keeping a Ripped version on an external disk? I think I seem to be wasting my time ripping and then encoding everything only because I plan on keeping all my DVD's anyway. What is everyone else out there doing.
