    I have purchased a few used CDs. I tell myself that the person I purchased them from is ethical and did not keep any digital copies. I am very good at rationalization.

    In my case that would be a stupid thief. The resale value of my CDs is much higher than that of my hard drives.

    No. They want the hard drives, not the content on them.

    I don't care if they kept digital copies or not. As a second-party purchaser, it's not my concern.

    My current best harddrive is a 4 TB one, which was about 100 EUR new. I have one or two records that (according to discogs anyway) fetch 100 or so EUR in the collector's market, and also some CDs that fetch 50 EUR each or so. A thief who knows his stuff would want to steal the most valuable items of my CD and record collection rather than the hard drive.
     
  7. Then keep an itemized print-out of your Discogs collection and it's value next to your CDs and LPs to help the thief make the correct decision and leave your harddrive.

    Yes, I better pin it on my front door so the thief doesn't burgle my next door neighbours instead.
