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.
An old 640GB laptop hdd
I hoard Game Art/Developement Stuff, Programs, Tutorials, Music, Mod tools, related images, I even have a meme or two[spoiler]-hundred[/spoiler]
I dont keep everything though. Lot of the shit is garbage and needs some careful though before abandoning[spoiler] them to a 2TB drive [/spoiler]
An internal 1TB exclusively for Teen Titans porn, with a focus on Raven and Starfire (mainly Raven).
100 or so folders with some archives and loose pictures.
I plan to go over every piece with Inkscape and make vectors of them.
>movies, tv, music, porn
Under 1TB, I delete movies and tv shows after watching once. Regularly prune music I no longer like.
really any rule34 stuff that i like, but i do have a bit of raven
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.
Should I tell you about booru's and ruin your life?
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
OS ISO's 31GB
Hentai anime 157.5GB
Western porn: 241GB
Music I've torrented (Not my actual collection): 3GB
Software/h games 125GB
TV Shows 62GB
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.
This message has been added to the archive.
Bunch of internals in various locations.
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.
Anyone know of any tool I can use to identify duplicate files? I need to prune my collection...
Bonus points if it can also look inside zips.
Haruhi/Angel beats/lain/tokyo 2040.
I hardly ever actually watch any, I might get the time for three shows a year.
(There's better shit I've forgot about, I know it. Can't put my finger on it though.)
Fucking Christ, of coarse, Armitage.
How the hell did I forget? Best shit I've seen in ages.
(M-my favorite's haruhi, but the fanbase can be shit so I don't mention it much) Still tie with Armitage
>What are you hoarding?
All of this is available on my Plex server that can stream to any device in the house and anyone that has a login to the server. Only limit is my upload bandwidth
Total space used approximately: 10.7 TB
Base in RAID 5
Ext Backup Drive for base vice videos. Take this to work in case of housefire
Movies & Shows put on blurays (50GB). I don't really care if I lose this shit, I've got enough buffer on private trackers.
Do you keep this computer running 24/7? I mainly start mine just before I want to watch something which works fine since I have the OS on a small SSD for quick startup.
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
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.
I cant even imagine what could be in there...
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.
I buy external drives and rip the hard drives out to put into my NAS. They're almost always cheaper than buying regular internal drives, yet they're the same fucking drive.
>Seagate Expansion 4TB $109.99
>Seagate Desktop 4TB $114.89
>WD Elements 4TB $119.00
>WD Green 4TB $145.99
>Toshiba Canvio 4TB $119.74
>Toshiba 7200rpm 4TB $124.99
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.
781 anime series', 228 3D shows and movies, 330,000 images and only about 2000 songs.
It's Two WD Black 1TBs, Two Green 1 and Three 2TBs, and a 500GB Evo SSD.
1TB internal HDD for anime and manga
750GB HDD internal for porn
1TB SSD external for videos, music, and photos
1TB HDD external for outlandish porn (only legal in the United States)
120GB SSD external to back up sensitive information (usually kept in a vault)
512GB SSD external to back up my most prized pornography that probably can never be found anywhere else again (also in the vault)
also about 5 other drives I have laying around the house with random shit on them
Jesus I'm amazed at how much storage all you people have
how many of you have had a drive actually die on you? Last night one of my 1TB hard drives died completely (luckily mostly empty)
SSD (internal): operating system drive
Datahoarder (internal): everything gets downloaded to this place and then sorted to their correct place later on
Porn (external): everything pornography, whether it is paid premium, torrents or whatever
Backup (external): backup of my original content (raw files etc)
Seedbox (internal): favourite tv-shows and movies are seeded for all eternity on this drive
not pictured: identical Backup drive stored at my bank's safety deposit box
Everything's full disk encrypted with either BitLocker or other open source alternatives
C: Boot drive, some programmes, etc.
D: Games and Native Instruments programmes
F: Shitty 600GB 2.5" drive I haven't gotten around to getting rid of yet, basically just there to dump my random shit I find / stuff I'm not completely sure I want to delete yet
G: Music and movies
H: Games that do not benefit that much from being on an SSD
Koreans have the best internet, but they never seed. You'll be hard pressed to find seeds for a show only a few years old. You also won't find the shows on streaming sites because they are constantly removed. This has led me to hoard everything.
I used to name my drives by planets or ancient cities. Not sure why I stopped.
Music and movies. Don't even need to hoard the music, I could just use the internet, but I like my music library to be well-organized, I rename every one of them to satisfy my ocd. The movies because I like them and full movies don't stay around for long on the internet.
I remember seeing a documentary about a guy who essentially did the same thing. He was hoping that once artificial intelligence finally gets invented, he will be the first person to be brought back to life as a program. After all, everything we are is memories. All our opinions, feels etc. are based on our memories.
music (organized), series & movies (various qualities and can be organized better).
I only care about my music though desu senpai. I have about half a TB backed up on two separate drives with rsync
That feel when too poor to buy hard drives, so every time I run out of space and can't delete anything, I have to compress it in an encrypted folder and upload it on the cloud.
>tfw you buy refurbished hdds for half the price
I don't know how to feel bros...
I think I prefer quantity over quality.
>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.
doesn't ZFS reccomend 1GB per TB and ECC RAM?
I haven't had a drive die on me when I wasn't prepared, usually I have some warning
I had a 250GB drive that worked for around 8 years before it quit, and a 640GB one that lasted 5
I think I might be due for a new set of drives too
Hitachi 3TB cheapo drive ( was like 80€ i think)
I hoard music, movies, series, and pirated games. Also a lot of roms.
>12TB of JAV/hentai/porn
>8TB of animu (mostly 1080p)
>2TB of seeds
>4TB of games
>5GB of music
Only so many months in a year, weeks in a month, days in a week, hours in a day, minutes in an hour, seconds in a minute to enjoy all this shit.
What the fuck is up with free NAS-oriented operating systems?
>web gui is pretty awful
>manage to break the zfs setup
>community full of autistic zfs worshippers, so they're not much help
>finally get a configuration working
>decide to redo it from scratch because you'd like encryption
>spend 20 minutes trying to figure out how to encrypt disks
>end up having to type an encryption key for every disk in the array
>somehow manage to encrypt a disk twice, cant fix it. configuration aborted
>looks like a fisher price web gui but is surprisingly usable
>decide to try setting up a JBOD
>nope, disk "crashes" every time
>try striping instead
At this rate it looks like i'm just going to have to setup a bog standard linux box and type all the commands in myself!
I'm turning around to them lately. 3 of my 4TB Seagates have been humming along just fine. Only one kicked the bucket, and that's because I accidentally knocked it across the room by tripping on its power cable.
I have 3 hard drives all external. Originally one use to be internal, but its a 3tb seagate and they're a piece of shit that can't handle being constantly on
right now I have three 3tbs and one 2tb. 8TBs of raw storage. They are loaded to the brim with wrestling. My collection is better than what the wwe network has ffs. complete WCW/WWF/ECW PPV sets and I'm slowly building up all the nitro/wwf raw sets. I also keep a stash of old windows game converted by GOG and complete videogame sets (upto the PS2/GC gen)
I have never been interested in anime porn until you said that. Raven *is* smoking hot and it has been years since I watched that shit. Anywhere I can look? Or is that a private tracker thing?
P jelly. You should do the WCD interview. If nothing else, it's a great stepping-stone tracker, and there may or may not be an event upcoming (1 million releases milestone)
Sure it did bud.
