>collection is already over 5tb
You can't help me anymore, I'm a lost cause
shaved ice flavoring dispenser with a particular decorative cardboard cutout
knowing otaku and japs in general, I'd say the likelihood of it actually being just lemon flavor is only around 40%
>remember the first time someone told me just how much memory 1TB is
>was amazed, what the fuck could ever fill that up
>random autist has filled it with chinese nonce propaganda
Not really. Series batches can oten be 30-40GB if you're an autist who downloads the biggest one. Hell even seasonal anime adds up fast. 20 shows, 12 episodes each, roughly 400mb per episode.
In reality I only have about 200 series saved at an average of 5GB a piece.
But if you download everything in 1080p10bit FLAC poorly compressed files you can easily fill up a terabyte drive with only 50 series.
What's bad about streaming? It just werks.
I've got about 130 shows stored there so it doesn't work out to a ridiculous amount per show. Quite a few of the earlier shows I downloaded are probably bigger than they needed to be though
I'm pretty picky when it comes to releases and often watch obscure stuff, couldn't find some shows on bakabt and nyaa torrents would be dead, so AB is the best option for me
Does anyone else really love watching anime, but they just can't bring themselves to start new ones? I can only bring myself to do it once every three months and I am always so anxious to start watching a new anime, but once I do, I always enjoy it. Do I have autism?
>not watching it online
Same desu. I just rewatch things I like and its really hard for me to find something that I will be willing to start, even though I like almost everything that I do watch. And yes its autism, everything is autism.
It's incredibly simple you fucking moron. You literally just buy a new HD and plug in a couple wires and fasten 4 screws. It would take 10 minutes of looking at a guide for you to understand the process.
>being smug about streaming online
enjoy your 240p i guess
>no clue how to upgrade or use more than one drive in my pc
You literally just plug it in.
If it's a usb external hard drive plug it into the usb slot on the computer.
If it's an internal harddrive open your computer and connect one of the free power cables to the hard drive then plug a sata cable into the harddrive and into a corresponding sata slot on the motherboard.
watching anime in anything higher than 480p is like upscaling ps1 games... -_- for almost every single anime there will be negligible improvement. the anime art style is inherently "smooth shaded" with little detail or texture - in other words; the video bitrate buffer doesnt fill as easilly as... something like cgi or camera video.
as long as the subtitles are legible ... there is no reason to watch a "high defination" anime.
I-i should rephrase as I don't know how to access it in Windows, how do i tell the pc where to save files? if the limit is reached will it automatically save to the bigger one if windows boots from the smaller one?
its simple, each hard drive is recognized as its own "volume", which for practical purposes you can consider an "HDDs" volume as its "folder".
>how to access it in Windows
w-w-what? Each drive has it's own letter, the OS hard drive is usually C:, all the others are other hard drives.
>how do i tell the pc where to save files
When you're saving or installing new files target the hard drive you want them in...
if you want to save space on one drive drag your files onto the other one and delete the ones on your first drive.
If you're torrenting go to preferences and pick the drive letter and location of your target hard drive.
How are you on 4chan and this computer illiterate?
Ok, well I knew all that, I think the issue must be that it isn't connected correctly, because it doesn't show up like in this pic >>26078394
Thank you for your advice kind anon excuse the stupid
i'm sitting at 1.36tb and a lot of stuff i download is only 480p because i have shit internet. would be more but i was a real noob for the first year and a half after getting into anime and i only streamed
well not necessarily, if you added a new harddrive to an existing install of windows you'll probably have to manually set up the volume from within the "disk management" section of the window "Computer management"
It eventually gets to the point where you just don't care.
Only at first. Then the shame wears off and you find yourself drawn into its clutches.
I've got about 8 TB of anime.
The differences are even greater when one source is DVD and the other BD.
Why do people always feel the need to come to these threads to make inane statements like this?
FLAC doesn't add that much to the file size. For example, I just removed the FLAC audio from a 2.41 GB file (single episode) and it changed to 2.28 GB.
I just downloaded Macross: DYRL. It was 12 GB for a 2 hour movie. File sizes are getting ridiculous.
I have probably around 3 TB or so, but a lot of that stuff is outdated and not in HD. I'll probably need to upgrade my storage once I begin a full HD upgrade of my collection, lots of shows are getting some great 1080p treatments these days.
That would actually be really useful now that I think about it, though I tend to buy a lot of domestic BD releases as well. Sadly stuff like Lodoss hasn't been licensed for years. Surprisingly how many licenses fell through from the year 2000 onward, especially after the ADV implosion.
