I try to nip data hoarding in the bud.
You're never gonna fap to all that porn.

That being said, i do keep a separate drive for rare shit that I won't be able to redownload again.

It's a few TB. I don't have all the old versions of everything, just some. Like FF all the way back to version 10, IE back to IE5, Ubuntu back to 4.04 or some shit like that, and all of the other major distros back at least ten years. I have Windows going back to 3.1, and assorted software for them all. I even have an original floppy set of Win95 in the box.

Why are you not a data hoarder? Hard drives are cheap and getting cheaper. Bandwidth is more precious than storage space. And wherever you found the stuff, it won't be there forever.

Yes, crazy data hoarders with underground server farms, like us.

It's mostly anime and blu-ray disc rips. When each movie is 30-45 gigs a pop it fills up fast. I only have about 1.7 terabytes of storage total though.

This is what h264 is for, you numbskull.
There's zero reason for you to be hoarding uncompressed ISOs of bluray discs.

You are lost

I'm waiting for Seagate to start shipping those 8 TB disks so I can store all my data in a 2 bay NAS.
>>
>>45724293
I like to burn them to blu ray discs and have all the special features intact. I also like the superior picture quality. It's worth the space for me.
>>
I for one hoard data that isn't porn.
I have an extensive music collection, with albums that I listen to sometimes and store because they're difficult to re-download.
I also have my anime backlog downloaded and ready for viewing, together with my favourite shows that I might re-watch.
Lastly, there's about 40,000 images that I collected over the years. None of them are pornographic either.
>>
>>45723676
I might need it.

Porn data hording isn't even the bad part for me.
I just download everything and then forget to delete it
I only have a 1tb hdd and it's just barely almost full, it's not that bad
>>
>>45723676
Every time I think I need to clean out my inbox, Outlook gives me more memory. Also, it's an archive of my life that I am going to save to archival tapes.
>>
>>45723676
I have 157 movies stored on my hard drive. At some point I stopped deleting them after watching because I like to re-watch them. I also have Star Trek TOS and TNG on my hard drive. I have some archives of youtubers who have tendencies to get taken down like MDE to name one. I have a few audiobooks. Then I have celebrity porn and that's it. All pretty reasonable.
>>
>>45724634
There is a thrift store near my house that has every episode ever made of Star Trek on VHS. It's pretty neat.
>>
>>45724660
Who would buy that though, with all the room that would take up
>>
>>45723676

Memories.
>>
>>45724712
Obviously the guy selling them. Other than that, I have no idea. Maybe a crazy person that likes the Trek.
>>
>>45723676

I used to hoard images, videos and website rips but I think I realized that it was sort of pointless. No one was ever going to ask me to repost any of it and I didn't use it either. Then I switched to using a 256GB SSD and from then on I didn't have the space to hoard.

I barely download songs, movies and series anymore too. Grooveshark and Popcorntime do their jobs fine for me.

I am a reformed hoarder.

Holy shit, smoking kills libido? :o I need to light up a cig and think about this new info I learned.
>>
>>45724928
My libido is active until I masturbate, then it is killed. When I go for a while not masturbating I become more alpha, but I have no problem with doing the deed.

ff10 isn't even that old
and mozilla's ftp has way older than that

also fyi, ubuntu 4.04 is the first version

>>
>>45725060
>also fyi, ubuntu 4.04 is the first version

Good to know, I don't use it, so I don't keep up with it just hoard it.

FF10 is important because it supports flash and works on really old OSs, the age isn't important.

Are you angry that I save things that aren't faggy chink toons and weird porn?
>>
>>45724518
If you have a single harddrive you don't know what data hoarding is, why are you posting
>>
>>45724972
When I go for a while without masturbating, my gf is not happy as I cum in 3 minutes, so I need to jerk off every day to keep my stamina up.
>>
>>45725086
>Are you angry
no, i have old stuff for similar purposes, too

i have a machine running windows me and ff9

>>45725109
>gf
What are you doing here? Your kind isn't welcome.
>>
>>45725120
I have lots of old machines, dozens actually, that I make sure have all period correct software, then yank the hdds and label them to what machine they belong in. Then I use the PCs in my server farm with ebay HDDs.

Sorry for being snippy, I'm tired and thought you were the other dbag that was whining about my collection.

265 GB Samsung 840 Pro - OS and apps
512 GB Intel 730 - Games
3 TB WD RE - Main data storage (almost out of space)
3TB WD RE - Main data backup
1.5 TB External Samsung - random data with no backup
500 WD Blue - scratch drive, could die any day now

I don't trust RAID controllers, so I manually add things to my backup drive. Considering one of those 6 TB seagate drives to use as a backup, which would double my data storage capabilities, but I don't trust seagate. I should really just get a NAS setup.
>>
>>45723676

I don't really. I haven't even filled up half of my 1TB external and I have all the movies, books, OS images, software archives, porn, shows, and misc shit that I desire.

The only thing I really feel "hoarder"ish about is saving Youtube vids I feel might get taken down for false DMCAs and shit. But low and behold, I'm right at least 30% of the time on it. Then who's there with a convenient mirror? This guuyyyy.

Back before hard-drives broke 100 gigabytes, I was a data hoarder, when my 80 GB (that was huge at the time) died did I start to question why I was holding on to all this junk? Today I have about 4 TB spread over about five drives and about 500 or so CDs, DVDs, and yes even a handful of 3.5 floppies.
