I've got just over 4000. With external drives sooooo cheap and many cloud storage sites offering free storage (50 GB etc) I think you can back them up

Requesting a refund so many times won't work. At some point if you keep asking then apple will say no. Then when you have a legit reason to ask them you'll get denied.

I never once requested a refund. Geez, I once had a query about it and now am I going to be forever known as the jerk who asked for a refund?😜
Even if Apple sent me a 3 TB HD it would still be a huge hassle managing all of that. Also managing updates would almost be a full time job. I don't think we will ever agree about this one. If an app was sold in the App Store. The api should be stored on their servers for a long time. Just because a dev stop selling it does not mean it should not be available for the person who bought it.
