I never did find out what caused the RPi to crash and corrupt its SD card, but the same card is still chugging on. The SD card has been home to the cache for several months now, running 24/7 and has been reliable except for that one crash.

    My RPi file system is also expanded to the card's full 8GB, after my eventually working out that the problems I was experiencing during LMS scans were caused by LMS needing a bit more than the storage that was then available (IIRC, that was 2GB at the time). The minor downside is that backing up the card takes rather longer than it did - possibly a bit under 30 minutes.
    The only data on the SD card worth backing up (assuming the music files are on another drive) is the CACHE and the piCore backup on /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/mydata.tgz. I do a backup of these files to the drive I have my music files. This can be automated with rsync and cron
