If you own them on disc why are you doing lossy conversion from container to container?
It's easier and more convenient to keep them in one place. Plus it serves as a backup for redundancy, should anything happen to the discs.
I'll say this much: I pirate and keeps a massive amount of .mkvs, .avis, and .mp4s.
This is true, but I've paid for and own over ¾ of the media in this "collection".
I have BDs, DVDs, VHSs, etc, of many things I've watched over the years, and keep digital copies of most of it, because things in physical media get lost over time.
Sure, one day hard drives will fail, but that's what backups are for.
