>>52405532 sorry I can't help you anon, but, seriously, what a pile of shit /g/ is now, when /g/ was first created people actually helped each other out. I wish /g/ had a mod/janitor who would start permabanning each and every shitposter on here as damn, le Reddit shits over /g/ and 4 chan in general these days.
>>52406266 >/g/ is NOT your personal tech support team or personal consumer review site. >/g/ is NOT your personal tech support team. This isn't a support board tard, this a board where we all discuss about memes sightly related to technology, if you need help use google you fucking retard.
>>52405945 >RAID array fails >10 TB of data gone >optical disc is destroyed >25 GB of data gone Optical media is redundant and safe. I wouldn't recommend using anything else for long-term storage, especially if you combine it with parity data.
>>52406368 1] You can compress 1080p movies to ~10gb rips that look exactly the same as the blu ray with 10-bit h264 2] SSDs exist, they're not a myth anymore. They're getting cheaper too. 3] You're an faggot
>>52410270 Pressed discs literally last more than decades. The fact that you treated it like a placemat doesn't impact on the quality of the format. Even then, a scratched disc can easily have the scratches removed (via a simple resurfacing) and work as new. This can be done many times, even with deep scratches.
If you treated a hard disc as you did an optical disc, it would last less than a month.
>swapping 400 discs I have ten blu-ray discs containing every photo I've ever taken in RAW format. I don't go back and look at them every half an hour. That's not the point of long term storage.
When I'm burning them, I'll burn an extra (with discs from another company) and I've already covered backup. They get stored at my parents house for safe keeping.
>>52411685 You're either batshit insane or extremely poor and stupid.
Someone up there showed a 480GB SSD for $120. I once even saw a 1TB SSD go on sale for $200. SSDs are extremely reliable and only fail after ~800+ TB of writes. So unless you wrote a TB of data to them every single fucking day then SSDs will outlive you.
Blu-rays are a dead technology, you have to accept it.
And don't listen to these faggots saying optical media is dead. 1250 GB for $27. I store everything on them and the best part is I don't have to worry about hack/virus/win10 etc fucking up my shit. Also, the illegal shit is extremely easy to hide if you put it in a slim case. Burn, grab the biggest Caselogic you can afford, and tell /g/ to fuck off.
>>52406548 again: >what is digital long time preservation Yeah just changed the data before archiving it. >WHAT IS OAIS, YOU FUCKING WHORE MONGERING BITCH SLAP CUNT FUCKER!!! At least be prepared to take a knowlegde dick up your arse when you open the box of "shitposting and pretending I know stuff"
For archiving purposes, optical is still the best solution. If you know someone who owns a tape writer, you can save much more because tapes are even cheaper than BD and have 10x capacity. Thought the tape writer itself costs a ton.
>>52415745 Right, in facts the Wc2 CD-R my cousing gave me when I was 12 and that I used only once in last 14 years doesn't work anymore... or so you wish. It still works flawlessly, even though it's slow as hell.
Depends on the media you use, personally I prefer only single layer discs because it's more reliable than double layer or double sided discs.
>>52415754 Low cost HDDs are even less reliable than SSD but they're still more affordable for archiving that's true.
>>52416190 Well, IsoBuster says all files are readable and I'm playing it in DOSBox right now (only the map editor works without DOSBox in Win7), for a 21 years old game on a 14 years old disc it's doing pretty good imho.
