The best thing to do is unplug the drive. Store it. Just check it every six months.
3 copies on different hard drives is about as safe as can be.

I no longer dream in C64 and never dreamed in MSX.

:)

Moving thread to Alternate OS section.

I got one machine with ZFS for backup in my garage, one server hosting most on mirror raid and works quite well for me :)

I collect games and all software for all systems, from consoles to home computers from the early beginning to PS2/GC/Xbox and mid 2000 on PC and have a vast collection by now gathered over the years, I do this because I enjoy retro gaming and want all consoles + interesting home computers and as fas as possible be able to play backups on em.
(a new server is soon going to be built with X-CASE RM 424 - 24 and 24x 4TB drives in the future, but all my interests cost money and 24 drives cost a lot so gotta prioritize but I hope to be done with it this year at least, still have a few expensive consoles missing from my collection I want to get before they skyrocket more)

Also to preserve it, so not to much perish over the years :)

Put so much time in gathering stuff over the years from private trackers where we collect and gather for complete sets together and much ebay/garage sales hunting and so forth to get as much as possible :)

Wow this went to be to much of a wall of text, but ZFS is great for ones who wanna try that for backup, bur no matter what way you prefer to have backups more then one machine is to recommend :) *crossing fingers my garage wont burn down if my house does*

Personally, I never had much use for the C64, but genlockable MSX video still interests me.

Cool, I never had a MSX machine so don't know what pleasures it provided.

Just in case no one has mentioned it yet:
http://www.cnet.com/how-to/create-a-retro-game-console-with-the-raspberry-pi/

Raspberry with controller support to play all kinds of games on emulators using a controller. If you want to go really old school:

http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/how-rig-raspberry-pi-support-nes-controllers

You can attach original NES controllers to the raspberry as well, so...

Also, i've seen one of those built into an arcade cabinet with one of the very old school control stick(s) and buttons for the super-retro arcade-hall experience.

Have fun.

Edit:
Also, you could put the whole thing into an old computer chassis and fit in some standard keyboard + PSU and you'd have your all-in-one-machine-like-that-c64-was :)
