Been transfering files to my new 5tb drives.
Who has the most TB of movies and TV here?
This is just my unwatched folder. Movies is about 14 TB total.
I lost about 3 TB of TV recently due to a failed drive so this isn't as much as it should be.
Who has the largest penis? I've been BTFO several times, there are still true /g/entoomen in here that run a good array with ZFS.
Why? as long as you aren't seeding they won't come after you. Its not illegal to torrent in alot of countries, or at least not really enforced.
Not in america jackass have fun with that.
Windows Server? haha no
What you non-pirates need to realize is once a films retail value is less than $10 MPAA and these other organizations stop giving a shit. Just don't torrent a movie within the first month of its release and you are generally fine.
I don't think you understand what i'm saying.
Put ANY distro on a USB stick and boot from USB, using linux to copy your 5TB. You will halve the time required for the copy.
The top drive transfer in the OP is running at 115mb/s, unless he's using some top-tier enterprise shit that means he's maxing the drive out and it's not possible to improve the transfer speed
at that bitrate, they're gonna look worse then DVDs and sound worse than a phone call. why even bother?
i prefer remuxes, but straight rips are OK too, just more work. of course, most of my movies are still x264 encodes, because finding remuxes/rips isn't always easy.
and i actually watch them on my 27" monitor, sitting maybe 70cm away, through my headphones.
>i prefer remuxes, but straight rips are OK too, just more work.
Honestly the reason I'd prefer remuxes over encodes any day is because encodes can possibly have encoding bugs as they are all made by hobbyists. And if they have, then you have to find another encode that maybe hopefully doesn't.
With a remux, you don't have to worry about all of that (and if the movie still has an encoding bug then it is either your decoder having an error - easy enough to test - or it was a factory error that you can't do shit about anyway so might as well not worry).

I have 2.5TB of Anime
Beginning collectionfag here, could use some advice.
I finally filled my 3TB and picked up another three of them, and a HDD dock as well. The idea was to use one to expand my storage, and the other two to keep as backups of those. Now, the two things are:
What kind of logic do you guys use to split your collections between drives? Just fill them up chronologically and use something else to see them as one big pool? Arbitrarily stick TV here, Movies there, Animu elsewhere and throw another drive into the mix when one fills, despite empty space on other drives? Fuck, it just makes no sense to me to have a pool of drives bigger than SSD+HDD.
I plan to do monthly backups and keep those drives at work 29 days of the month. What do you guys use for that? What would be best in my case? Just copying files over normally and skipping dupes or something?
Only 12TB now. Re-ripping Blu-ray / DVD / HDDVD collection after a catastrophic mid-plane failure in my SAN.
Before failure? 74TB movies (all full frame with no compression), 22TB in shows, and about 10TB of music.
All using 4TB drives in 1 Dell MD3200, and 5 MD1200's.
Ain't even mad...
Im just beginning my collection of hdds. Would /g/ recommended sorage like pic related or do you have better options.
Externals? Fuck no, that's why I got the dock. Will have 2x3TB in desktop and another 2x3TB bare drives in their original packing sleeves all warm and comfy at work, hiding from housefires.
>tfw you don't have enough tbs of storage to download the complete moe archive of shitposts
I just keep mine stacked up in a box in my closet...
Unless you live in a natural disaster prone area or are working with mission critical data that's really not necessary
I'd like to hoard data but I would also like some level of automated redundancy or resiliency against bitrot or damaged disks. Are there any good solutions for this aimed at offline storage?
Does the torrent have a folder for each thread? I want to download all of a certain general from /vg/ but don't want to download the entire thing.
