What hard drive do you use for your Master Archive? Internal or external?

What hard drive do you use for seeding?

What are you hoarding?

I'm currently hoarding 2TB of loss-less music. All neatly organized as well.

I have 34TB of discs, I just ordered a 16TB array, but they send me a bloody $10 (apparently, that's what was on the receipt in the box) switch.
I hope to god they didn't send my array to someone who ordered a $10 switch, there's no way they're giving that shit back.
So 50TB soon. Hopefully.
I'll finally be able to sort out my drives with all the extra space I have, he lies to himself.
Fuck me. At least I'll be able to back up and fix some fucked software raids I have.
Be able to delete all the duplicates on a stack of 20TB's of drives I don't have access to so I've redownloaded what I need.
Wonder how much space that'll free up.

I have one 300GB HDD and ain't hoarding anything.
>>
>>52699928
>>52699937
I dunno.
Shit, I guess...
Half is always for backup, so 34 goes down to 17TB of actual data.
Of that, 10TB (20TB of drives) are in a semi fucked array and I won't touch them till I can back them up.
Let's have a quick stickybeak through the 7TB of active drives I have running now...

Unsorted torrents I've completed: 2.4TB
Unsorted torrents I'm downloading: 421GB
Other peoples backups and dumps of their disks (Sneakernet) 51.2GB
VR Porn: 94GB (Throw in two mega accounts each full of 50GB of stuff to download when I get the new drives, so, 194GB)

Files dumped from my user folder (4chan images, pics and videos from my cameras and phones, youtube videos I've downloaded) 1.8TB
Backup disk images: 475GB
Unsorted (Games, videos I've edited, applications) 34GB
Pictures of Nagato Yuki: 3GB but stored like 20 times
Streams from my IP cameras: 7GB
Videos from my phone: 7GB
Booru rips: 10GB
Websites I've ripped 1.5GB
Youtube videos 42GB
VM's 351GB
OS ISO's 31GB

Media:
Hentai anime 157.5GB
JAV 386GB
Western porn: 241GB
Music I've torrented (Not my actual collection): 3GB
Software/h games 125GB
Films 116GB
TV Shows 62GB

Anime 506GB
Doujinshis 27GB
There. That's 7 of 17 active terabytes mapped.

I have around 91tb of data.

I screenshot everything, I log everything, I have saved everything I have done daily for years Into folders just in case I need them.

For example I could tell you what Web pages, movies, images, audio I was looking / listening to at in June 1st 2002 at 2pm or who I spoke to (if anyone) and at the end of the day how much bandwidth I used in total.

This has gone on daily since 1996.

I use Seagate Archive 8TB.

Cost per TB is the most important factor. Any HDD can fail so it's just a matter of having the most copies.

I still have backups from my first own computer, built in 2004. It's just around 1TB though, and fits nicely with my other backups onto a 2TB HDD. Guess I'm not hoarding too hard.

>>
>>52702474
24/7 operation on mine above, yes. They also are the same HDDs as the torrents are seeded on so I feel like these drives have a shorter lifespan than I would appreciate even with full working time
>>
>>52697978
Hello, data hoarders
Why do many of you use HDDs instead of an external hard drives?
>>
>>52702780
Mostly because why have an external box and a wall wart around when you could tuck it away nice and neatly inside the computer that probably already has space for it? This becomes more and more of a concern as you increase the number of drives. I have four in my desktop (SSD, 2TB, 3TB, 3TB), and the latter three have counterparts in my server that the data gets backed up to. The SSD being a boot drive, that's three hoarding drives and another three backups, and I have a few more disks besides. If you wanna set that up as a rat's nest of USB cables, you be my guest.

The thing they're useful for is offline, offsite backups.

do you guys use RAID or BTRFS/ZFS?
>>
>>52703798
I have a btrfs RAID1. I don't have enough drives to back up everything that way, but I keep a subset of important stuff on it. Checksumming and snapshots are great to have for this kind of thing.

There's some anons that swear by ZFS, but that kinda needs you to take things to another level both in the hardware you buy and the effort you put in managing and maintaining your data.

A little under 5TB all told, including a little under 900GB of music (mostly either MP3 320 or v0), about 400 movies (mostly 720p), 44 TV shows (most with multiple seasons and at least 720p), and about 3GB of CS-related ebooks.

God I love private trackers.

External drives are refurbs in enclosures.

That's why they are cheaper.
>>
>>52700903

It would serve you better not to have records.
>>
>>52704403
No, they're not. I have three Toshibas and a Seagate with manufacture dates about two-three months before I purchased them. They are new drives. Maybe WD does it like that, but I've yet to see an external drive come with a hard drive more than half-a-month older than the purchase date.

I remember having some refurbished WD (the most recent ones were 1.5 TB Caviar Green) and they all had the word refurbished printed on the sticker.

Okay, that just proves my suspicions. Not even Seagate does this, and they're pretty shitty.
