What do you do when you run low on space? Do you buy more hard drives? Delete some series? Burn them to DVD?

I am too poor for the first, and no longer want to do the second. What's the best way to burn my animus to a DVD without too much quality loss?

I have an almost limitless supply of DVD+Rs

I will never stream.

>not that easy to get a job while NEET

It's easier than you might think.

There are tons of shitty jobs out there that cycle away half of their staff practically every month, and many of their employees are the dumbest of the dumb, have been exceedingly short sighted in regards to handling their jobs, and have criminal records.

Take one of these jobs (dress nice, be positive, and show confidence that you can do job the right; if they're interviewing you, you have a chance) and hold it down for six months to a year. And get in good with your bosses. All you have to do is always do as you're told, make sure that you're always busy, and be smarter than the aforementioned idiots, and you'll be fine.

Then start looking for a higher paying job. You know how your bosses like you? Get them to give you a good reference. That goes a long ways.

Congratulations, you now probably have a paycheck that you could even move out on if you wanted.

>>110204720
unless you plan to rewatch it or sharing it with friends, it's kind of a waste of space to keep everything you've downloaded.

If then you want to watch again something you don't have anymore, just download it again.

Exceptions for dead/hardly seeded torrents that takes ages to completely download.

External HDDs are not that expansive nowadays... Not to mention it's worth investing your money into.

For example, I picked up this one for only 50 bucks.

That said, you should also pick up a decent 2~3TB internal HDD as well for convenience. This again doesn't cost that much.

That's what most casuals do. I have a friend who only recently started watching anime again (he hasn't watched it since high school pretty much) and all he's done is watch old series he saw but never finished as a teenager. He's not really into new shows that much.

Comparatively, I pick up 15+ new shows every season and finish about 2 series a month from my backlog.

Out of the two of us, my friend is more typical.

Never buy an external as a complete package, compaines usually put worse HDDs in them since they're intended for the less techy customers. You can't expect the same longevity of performance, unless you know what's inside.

Buy an enclosure for your internal drives if you no longer have free 3.5" slots.
>>
>>110206380
WD is a good company for externals, but it's still wise to stick to 1.5TB and under, because larger external drives are prone to failure. If you're going to buy external drives, then go with smaller ones.

post size of anime folder?

>>110204614
100 DVDs is 400GB at best, more like 300 if you don't want them to be a mess. If series is 5GB, you have to burn it on two separate DVDs.

They're extremely inefficient to use because each series requires different DVD. The process of taking one DVD out of PC, looking for another, putting it in, waiting for it to be ready takes ages compared to clicking a folder on HDD.
Burning DVDs takes a lot of time. With HDD you simply keep what you downloaded.
Also, huge difference in reading speed.

>>110207513

I hope that 5+ TB drives under 200 dangles start becoming a thing. I have a few other shitty computers I built I could just use as storage secondary to mining.

I don't think anime is easier to find than porn on the internet. Considering the fact that there is easily more porn than anime on the interwebs. Additionally, unless you want to stream anime, it would require an extra step which makes it a little bit harder. You could say the same thing about porn as well but it is so much more abundant and it comes in many forms besides video. Porn is easier to get than anime. Yet both are easy to get. Quit being retarded.

I'd wait a while before buying a 6TB drive. They'll probably have issues for a while. Especially if they're Seagates. Not to mention having that many heads and platters in one place with 'new techniques' behind them is asking for something to go wrong.

A while back I decided I would delete everything that I didn't think was a 9/10 or above.

I've never had trouble with seagate or wd, you just want to make sure you know what you're buying.

the 'eco' and 'green' drives people buy I'm pretty sure are the ones that break down the most, all because they wanted to save 5 bucks.
Deleting and redownloading the same crap repeatedly will kill your drives.

It really just comes down to how you treat your shit, you don't need to take care of a hard drive much, its just a matter of not developing bad habits.

Burn the HDTVrip (mkv 1280x720 300 mb aprox) to DVD-R. I have 150 dvd burned whit anime. If a better version go out of a good anime, i reburn the dvd. And then delete them frome the pc or the external hdd.
In some point i have been spent more money buying dvd that the price of a 1 TB HDD (moar capacity that the dvd). But i can't whait for the money to buy one.

Where do you live? As an Italian I have barely 3mbit. Downloading an anime movie or a series takes a whole night. Even many americans have pretty bad internet connections.
Still having to wait 20 minutes is quite inconvenient if I want to rewatch a part of a show. It's much better to have it on your drive in the first place.

Take it out of the caddy and hope it's using a SATA->USB adapter. If it is you can just plug it in over standard SATA.

Otherwise you'll probably have to do a PCB/ROM swap if the thing is properly fucked which I doubt you'll want to do.

If it's powering, that's usually a sign it's working enough to get it to acquire on the system provided the drive works if it's just USB. See if it's making any noises when you put your ear to it.

It's probably a standard SATA drive in an enclosure with a USB connector, then. Which is both good and bad because there's a chance that the connector has gone rather than the drive, but you'll actually need the cables to plug it up over SATA to test otherwise.
