"to be fair, the music i buy from Amazon has no DRM and i can put it on 100 devices to back it up."<br><br>To be fair, you can make as many backups with DRM protected music as well. (They may not play on other devices, but for archive purposes...). I'm not advocating DRM in any way, rather, I'm only indicating that's not an excuse for not making backups. I suspect the same music would have been lost if it had been purchased from Amazon.<br><br>
