    Is this a good idea or is it best to back up to an external hard drive?

    I use Match as a back-up for the event my HD back-up fails...

    I have all my music in Match. I do have a back up I do once every few months, but mostly rely on Match. I download whatever play list I want to listen to at the time.

    Just wondering if I can ditch the ext HD and rely totally on Match.

    I don't see why not. Unless apple goes under. If something is missing then You just call them and they can fix it.

    Maybe I'll give it a shot. I already use Dropbox for my pictures.

    I love it and for the price if you have a lot of music you can't beat it.

    All of my music is in Music Match. I also keep a HD backup but I don't worry about it as much since we started music match a couple years ago.

    Say I need to restore my computer to its factory settings and I use iTunes Match. Will all my music be available again once I reinstall iTunes and sign into my Apple ID?

    Yup. On your Mac or PC and all your iOS devices that you have on that account.

    I was a little hesitant to do the PC restore as I was afraid I may lose all my music.

    I think it's good to have but I feel like nothing is as good as having a backup on an external drive
