Do you think data hoarding is real? I sort of think so, I have 5 hard drives, two are filled to the brim with random images and media and the other is 2TB of anime.
What about you?
I have about 4tb of movies and tv shows that I've accumulated over the past year.
Some of them I haven't watched, nor do I intent to. Just got them on freeleech and wanna retain that sweet seeding bonus.
I have five terabytes of porn, all of which is backed up.
in the far future when the surveillance-industrial complex, SJW democrats, and evangelical republicans have all conspired to censor the internet, I will be distributing my collection to others in secret so that future generations of teenagers will know the tradition of fapping to pirated JAV, just like I did
check some of the HSG threads and you will know if they are real or not.
personally, I used to be a data hoarder, not so much right now since i've deleted most of my unwanted shit, I only kept:
-Hr pictures art, war stuff, space stuff too
-useful software and games
Still I need to sort and do a catalog of 30gb of ebooks and 200gb of porn pics. funny thing is...I've deleted my porn folder more times than I can count but it keeps coming back, man
Whoah, the thought od wondering how many people such as myself regarding this has been on my mind since I've bought my 2TB HDD a month ago. I have 1TB of anime, I need a lot more storage space regarding that. I have about 70k artwork pieces(around 90k with the ones I since yesterday, due to having only 500MB remaining, must transfer on to my PC library from my phone, and in an orderly fashion(everything sortet, e.g. Vocaloid/Hatsune Miku, Touhou , Kantai Collection/Ecchi++, etc.)).
So yea, atm. I've got a capacity of 3.5TB, and I am on the need of at least 4TB more (backups are mandatory, I don't backup anime though).
Too poor to afford real hording.
Now completely out of space because I just grabbed 179GB of Blurays to encode a series for someone I don't even know.
You're all plebs.
After 5 years i've used 150gb of my 250gb hard drive
And i haven't even deleted anything
5 TB full with TV programs & films. Will list when im home.
Yes data hording is real. I have a friend who literally saves everything he sees.
Benefit - has loads of cool game emulators for literally every console
Negatives - Deleted his family's backups just to get more space
I got multiple hdd ranging from Quantum Bigfoot CY 6.4GB to modern 4TB hdds.
I got 75846 individual comics archived + 180GB pending archiving.
I got 2x3TB of quality animu.
Also films+tv series+games+OSs.
I even got a whole copy of yande.re (>1TB).
Yes I would think hoarding is real and should be considered a disease.
>pic is 4x3TB+1x4TB.
It will take me 167,423,219,872,854,268,898,191,413,915,625,282,900,219,501,828,989,626,163,085,998,182,867,351,738,271,269,139,562,246,689,952,477,832,436,667,643,367,679,191,435,491,450,889,424,069,312,259,024,604,665,231,311,477,621,481,628,609,147,204,290,704,099,549,091,843,034,096,141,351,171,618,467,832,303,105,743,111,961,624,157,454,108,040,174,944,963,852,221,369,694,216,119,572,256,044,331,338,563,584 terabytes of storage to store every kilobyte possible.
That is, every combination of 1 and 0 1024 times; each separate; with no sort of compression or overlapping.
My hoarding may take a while.
5 JBODs of "linux ISOs"... I'm thinking about taking the plunge into building a NAS because right now it's kind of a clusterfuck, 2x2TB shitty poorfag WD NAS, 2x2TB greens and 1TB black in my desktop. Would like to build a 10TB+ NAS soon.
kinda agree.. I may have 4x2TB harddisks of loaded stuff with films/serials / random old pc backups / animes / more random stuff and I only take the hdd with the tv shows once in a month when I finally have a little free time to watch a few episodes;
other than that, my /home/dir is maybe 2GB (not including steam and music library and other .hidden folreds)
I've had to purge a few times but I keep going back for more.
I've got what's approaching a TB of music (with most of that in MP3 no less), more manga that's unorganized than I've ever REALLY intended to read, more anime than I've watched (with some encodes probably old enough to be replaced), and TV/movies.
At least I'm not anal enough to have complete Redump and MAME CHD sets yet... but with how availability gets to be sometimes I wonder why the fuck not.
Took me long enough to realize my Steam games really aren't going anywhere, too.
>everything is redownloadable
I lost some good porn, man...
Everything is backed up once. In fact the pic 4x3TB hdd are 2x3TB + their backups.
I do not have the money for a third backup but if the size/price trend continue then I think I will be able to start an offsite third backup soon.
I made a FlexRAID but now even that is full and I have movies and TV shows on various USB and internal drives. If they go bang oh well. I can always grab them again at the expense of losing some ratio.
It's not hoarding. Data is not taking up any more physical space than a fucking computer would anyway. Is a library hoarding? Is Netflix hoarding?
Even if I had 200TB of data it would not be hoarding.
>Quantum Bigfoot CY 6.4GB
I got a 512 megabyte hard drive, Western Digital caviar 2540. Last time i used it i installed puppy linux on it and not a single issue, unfortunately i dont have a computer with IDE headers anymore
Repair guy here.
My personal stash:
1x NAS with 5x2TB (8TB useable) for personal backups
2 x 3TB, 8 x 2TB, 15 x 1TB external drives for movies and vidya
PC with 2 x 2 TB, 2x 1TB
Laptop with 1 x 2TB, 1 x 1TB
10+ external drives below 1TB
From my repairs/donated/salvaged stash, I have:
4 x 3TB
And 100+ 750GB or lower drives, mix of SATA,SCSI & PATA all the way down to a 2GB SCSI hdd from 1998.
I have quite a strange setup. I don't use raid of any kind, just JBOD. I sync the 3 sets of 2 disks myself using freefilesync. That way I always have a before/after copy and can undo anything I want. I have full control and oif something happens I can pull one of the disks out and connect it to any other machine in my house and it just seems.
I also use shadow copies.
I use them to repair peoples computers.
Also, when people have a dead hard drive, if I have the same model, I can replace the drives board and get it running, and in one case I replaced the platters and it spun up long enough for the guy to get his files off it.
They aren't physically fragile but very sensitive to dust, fingerprints or anything else you can think of.
With a bit of luck and preparation you might actually be able to swap some platters.
It isnt something you can do without preparing for it.
I use my bathroom, I run an air purifyer for about an hour, run the shower for about half an hour, and that will get rid of most of the dust.
Open the hdd (using undusted latex gloves) remove platter on new hdd, replace with old platters.
Now you have to work quickly. I just fit the top back on, plug in, spin up, copy your files.
The hdd WILL die quite quickly after opening it, but it ahould survive long enough to pull what you want off it.
How swappable are the boards. I assume they need to be the same model? I never really considered this option for recovering data. Does the drive just spin up and read or do you need to use recovery software?
Boards are much easier. Make sure they are same model. (On rar occasions, you will have to have the same firmware version)
One platters are replaced, plug drive in, and use just like normal.
Please be aware that if your original platters suffered from a head crash, or you can see scratches on the platter, then there isnt much hope for the data.
As long as you're properly dating, naming, labeling, and organizing the data it's fine.
<- this is what plebs actually believe.
>Do you think data hoarding is real?
I have a problem
some pleb-tier anime, a handful of movies/TV shows that I like, a giant folder of 4chan pics, a music folder that's really small by most people's sandards, some other junk. but all told all this non-porn stuff adds up to only a terabyte or so. but I have it and it's backed up too
I'm a fellow hoarder myself but recently I've started to give cloud storage the cold shoulder
You see, all my hard drives are full disk encrypted and there's really no cloud storage with encryption that doesn't cost a small fortune.
I've been looking at a 128GB flash drive from Samsung, shit only costs 40 bucks and like any other flash drive, it can be full disk encrypted. The big plus here is that you can just clip it onto your keychain and then it becomes kind of like an offsite backup (if your house burns down and you're outside, you probably have your keys with the flash drive attached in your pocket). Another advantage is the write and read speeds. I have 100/100mbit/s internet but i only reach 300KB/s to 3MB/s upload on all the major cloud storage providers kek
You can synchronize and update folders with programs like FreeFileSync etc (with the mirror preset)
well you can always encrypt locally. If your data is encrypted with a key only you hold before it hits the wire, there's nothing untoward the cloud provider can do with it except lose it.
What I hate about data hoarding is my habit of randomly backing disks up on newer, bigger disks.
Then when browsing a drive you suddenly find last year's porn stash right out in the open.
You can continue in your enterpreneurship, dude
and I am sorry to open up your eyes to the grim reality here
one day you'll realise that in your whole life you won't be able to see all the porn, the games and the animuh you collected.
That will be the day you're on the top of your bell, where the y is the interest in shitty digital life.
Then you can choose...
>tfw know my hoarding is obsessive
>can't delete it now, spent too long accumulating it
>tfw wish I was just free again and just consumed things on the go in the moment
>tfw wake up in sweats thinking my drives have messed up
>badly want to data hoard and archive everything
>shitty new zealand internet
About 16Tb right now
2Tb external, plus various large USB keys, other older assorted drives that I don't have space for. Plus a 120gb SSD for my primary/OS drive.
Huge amount of HDTV and Bluray movies, probably about 4Tb worth of Rainbow tables and password lists for hash cracking and various brute forcing.
>not buying disks in pairs
>not literally having at least two copies of everything
Nigga its cheap. I just bought 2x3tb Toshiba 7200rpm drives for £65 each. They're one of the cheapest 3tb 7200rpm drives but also one of the fastest.
>You can synchronize and update folders with programs like FreeFileSync etc (with the mirror preset)
Freefilesync is fucking awesome. I have been syncing 6 disks with that software for years. Fuck raid.
Google Fiber is the ultimate botnet. They literally track and analyze every bit of data you ever download/upload (unless it's encrypted). But they still know every domain you ever visit through Google DNS. They know every email you received or sent. They know everything you ever searched for.
In exchange for what? So that you can shitpost at 10 Gbps?
ok so this is pretty cool, i've just gotten badass fiber internet so i was looking to add my hoarded 1080P rare movies back for seeding. Apparently there's a lot of active leechers but no seeder until i re-added mine. I gave life to them again
Nope. Green 3x 1TB and 3x 2TB, all working fine.
Oldest is probably 6ish years? I honestly dont remember.
The Others are a 500GB 840EVO, and 2x 1TB Blacks.
I actually havent had a SATA drive die on me, ever. A few older IDE Maxtors, WD and Seagates have died, but that's about it.
Greens are extinct actually, they were merged into the Blue drives.
What you mean to say is that's the only thing separating Blues from Reds :^)
And the extra year of warranty of course.
Firmware is slightly different but the most important change is honestly the head resting one, if you disable that they're very similar. Physically they're not really different however they have been accused of being bin sorted.
Yeah it's disgusting. Thank god the price gap closed, it used to be like double the price to get Reds and all that was different was they loaded a different set of firmware and gave you an extra year of warranty.
Frankly I won't ever be buying them, I'll just stick with hacked Blues.
I'm kinda into the data hoarding phase because when big brother locks down the internet, i want to have everything at my disposal.
I have cut back. I used to download every album i found, now its mainly ones that i am looking forward to hearing. I tend to download all the smaller foreign movies to keep.
>fell for the WD Red meme
>get 4x4tb £125 each
>over a year later, yesterday
>receive my 3tb Toshiba's for £65 each
>7200rpm, shitloads faster, no louder and run at the same temperature as reds.
Because I have a microserver with a xeon e3 1260v2 and 4 drives packed into a tiny case, thought I'd have more thermal issues but the drives never go beyond 32C whereas one of my externals reaches 45C easily.
That and they weren't the cheapest or most expensive drives and performance isn't really an issue.
i have 4x2tb wd blacks in my case which i plug in to backup every 6th month.is this a bad thing to do? can somene tell me how to store hard drives not being used and whats generally the best between 2 vs 3 vs 4 tb?
It's literally a meme. I spent hours comparing drives and even among WD drives the labels barely make sense. The green eco drives use more power and are louder than red drives for example. If you're gona call something green you better make sure its the coolest and quietest drive in your own lineup.
The only thing I've data hoarded is like 100+ Wii game rips because I own them and ripped them so I could upload them to bitgamer for that sweet sweet ratio like 6 years ago.
>Bitgamer is kill
>tfw you have a VPN but no private tracker memberships anymore
>Educate me anon.
Remux is a lossless Bluray rip packaged as an MKV. Internal is an encode release made by a private tracker group to appear transparent to the remux but be much smaller.
My interest is mainly in classic films so I settle for DVD rips.
I still buy DVDs and rip them, simply because it's fucking hard to find some of the movies I want on public trackers that aren't YIFY shit.
>32 tb of drives in raid 6 for 21 tb of storage
>Filled to 11 tb of crap in 4 months.
>have another 4 nas's offline with piles of hard drives more
>I may have a slight problem
$10k?!?! Unless your making money off that shit, get help man! ;)
funny thing or sad is that i should be saving for another house deposit instead im fucking wasting it on hdds and raid cards and sas expander boxes to store japanese cartoons I can just simply stream. FML
I think that works fine until they randomly check your shit when you arrive back home and charge you with the difference. I got pulled aside at the airport as I was the first to leave the baggage claiming area. Didn't have anything on me though.
Its certainly tempting considering mosdt hardware that costs £100 here costs just $100 abroad.
>Why would you keep the movies?
Those are redownloadable.
3tb hdd, 2tb, couple of 320gb 2.5". 512gb ssd, handful of usb sticks. Will up my ante once I get a house streaming project going.
>Those are redownloadable.
Yeah I thought that a few times until I started to realise shit disappears quicker than you think.
of course its real, hoarding of all types is real, animals, items, food, etc.
ive only filled 250 gigabytes of my single terabyte hard disk. I seriously don't know how people can fill up more, I am trying god dammit
Depends on what you're hoarding.
I have porn that takes 4GB per hour of footage.
That fills harddrives quick.
Or animus where 350MB 30 minute episodes in sets of 12 or 24, with 5-6 of these every half year.
why dont you delete the anime youve already watched? rarely will i finish an anime and think that i might want to rewatch it. most of them are plain terrible, i will never understand anime hoarders
It is real. I have 120GB SSD in my laptop and I never needed more.
I stream all my media and my GIS work files are all on remote server.
I never understood why people hoard tons of 4k animu or TV shows, watch them once and never again.
Agree with that. Didn't know whether there was a technical reason. I think it's mostly gamers that fall for the black meme.
>480mbit vs 400-800
Which translates to firewire 400 being barely faster than USB 2 and firewire 800 topping out at ~70 which is still shit compared to USB 3 which is more compatible, much more common than firewire and can hit 300mbyte/s and more with UASP.
Most devices I've seen only use the shitty firewire400 ports too which is pointless.
Firewire is dead and was doomed from the start.
>bought a 2 bay NAS
>two 5tb drives in
>fill it up in raid
>switch to jbod just for the space
>already looking at 5 day solutions
I've started to rn out of shows and stuff to download that I really want, but now I've turned to upgrading all my rips to much higher quality. it never ends.
I wish I had enough money to hoard shit. I've been considering upgrading to a 1TB HDD since 250GB is pretty bad.
If I like a movie or tv show then I buy a physical copy, so I always delete them when I'm done
I usually listen to the radio for music, so I don't have any music stored
I think I'm using like 80gb on my 500gb ssd
>mfw I spent 4 days on a 8 core xeon converting porn that was over 1.5gb per hour.
>mfw room for another 500gb
No fucks given. I don't need ultra tier quality to fap on my cheapish 1080p tablet or phone when I'm abroad.
POW!! Right in the kisser!
They have different reliability and performance. My 4TB came with a 3-year warranty, but the SMART info said it came with a 5-year warranty.
My 3TB is only a 2-year warranty and is slower in almost all aspects.
I applaud you anon.
I hope one day when the internet dies a death, I can see your massive collection uploaded and browse its' wonders.
here i am thinking i'm autistic, but then i see shit like this
do you guys look like pic related?
