>tfw my only hard drive is a single dying 320GB(296GiB) drive

I mean, I have a three year old 2TB external sitting in a box that's never been used, but I want to do something with partitioning maybe a fourth of it to be backup, and the other three fourths to be general use. But I don't know how to do that.

>Less than 700 gigs

>>
>>117302971
No, I want a partition of 500GB to be a backup for the 320GB hard drive on my laptop, and use the remaining 1.5TB as regular storage space. I might not even need to partition it.

>>117302891
>>117302220
It's not the partitioning that's the issue, it's that I don't know the correct/best way to have it automatically back up my laptop's hard drive when I plug the external drive in. I know there's stuff like CrashPlan or Clonezilla out there, but I'm not in the mood right now to go looking for which software delivers exactly what I want. I know that I used to have a 1TB external from WD that came with some nice autobackup software, but I haven't really though of if it only works with that specific external or if it would work otherwise. Maybe my experience with the WD software is a Plato's Cave thing in which I don't know how bad it actually is. I do know that I'm not going to be paying money to for an autobackup solution.

It's not that I don't know what to do, it's that I don't know the right way to do it. Like I said, I don't even know if I should have separate partitions for the backup and general storage.

There isn't really much point creating a partition purely just for the backup.
>>
>>117303589
Why is it so low here http://alternativeto.net/software/dsynchronize/ ?

Is it just that your average everyday person doesn't know about it?

Actually, what is so good about DSynchronize over its alternatives anyway? Is it just that it's simple and gets the job done, or is it that it's more customizable, or what?

>Watch
Angel Beat (meh but some parts are good, 1 ost is great and op is good)
Azumanga daioh is funny
Code Geass for stupidity fun in R1, shit in R2 but good ending.
Darker than Black S1 is okay
Hidamari Sketch is okay depending on your SoL intake.
K-On is fun.
LWA is okay
Nichijou is decent but jokes fall flat, still worth watch for the animation.
Panty & Stocking is fun (dub is decent but misses the punch)
Madoka is alright not great.
Seitokai Yakuindomo is fun.
Steins;Gate is shit but people like it so meh.
Same with Toradora. Best anime romance whatever.
Watamote is good but cringy as fuck. A lot more than the manga.
Yuru Yuri is fun.
Yuyushiki is fun.

>Skip
Everything else

Honorable mention is to watch Ika Musume for that one sad episode.
The rest is a poor copy cat attempt of Yotsuba.

''Make your own opinion'' doesn't make it less shit.
The only good thing out of it was the idol episode.
And even then, you can just watch that on youtube and skip the anime entirely.

>Oh, you meant Kyoukai no Kanata, not Kara no Kyoukai. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
There are two KnK(s)
KnK anime and KnK movies.
The former being from Kyoani and the later being by Ufotable.

Despite the misunderstand, the sentiment is the same.

Kara no Kyoukai is shit.
The only slight exception is movie 5 but it's still terrible. Everything else is beyond terrible.
Good animation and music does not make for a lackluster plot and characters.

>>
>>117317040
It took a little while to get it sorted out. XBMC has its quirks and once you figure them out it's not hard.

Reorganize and rename anime. Folders should be Media->Anime->Lain and files should be Lain ep01 or for multiple season s1ep01. Programs can help you do this.

Next is using "scrapers" that will get all the art and metadata. I use the AniDB for almost all my anime except for anime that has multiple seasons, then I use the TVDB.

Last is choose a skin (I am using Aeon Nox skin 4.0.9) and tweak the fuck out of it till you are happy.

I believe you CAN do madVR but it will require some DIY to get it working. In my case im about 12-14 feet away so any madvr stuff would be pointless.

As far as metadata it took a while to figure out the quirks of XBMC and the scrapers. Could you give me an example of an obscure show?

The Greens are notoriously unreliable. Google it. I've got one that I'm using for backups only, and it's supposed to be fine if you don't access it too frequently, but I'm thinking I should unplug it and put it in an external enclosure just to be sure it's not spinning up/down on its own.

You fucking cheapass nigger.
This isn't 2004. A 3 TB hard drive is about $100, and that's the normal price. If you shop on Black Friday and Tech Monday, you should find even better deals.

>>117322680
I'm not sure there's a difference.
>>
>>117322724
>What do you mean by production run?
Hardware is manufactured in batches. Some batches are made better than others. Hence people shelling money for CPU's and GPU's from certain bins (batches). Certain bins are known to overclock really well, while some cannot overclock for shit. The same is true about HDD's. Some are great, some are poor. Though people usually care less about hdd bin numbers.
>>
>>117322724
Can you give examples of anime that you'd need a private tracker to get access to?

That's because you may never know just how bad a certain batch was until 1-2 years too late when you've already bought it.

i understand entirely that the physical file is superior to streaming; i'm not arguing that point here. i think streaming for me works out to be preferable; 1080p streaming, while not as good as having the 1080p file, works fine with my schedule.

>>117322881
Of course. I'm not saying they are in the right for not caring. How would one test the quality of an HDD anyway? Read/write tests? Would that lend any information towards the longevity of it?

>>117322812
How would you go about acquiring HDDs from certain bins? Is there some sort of indication and how do you know which bins have better quality?

Hmm, NHK is one. You can't find a better release anywhere else. Older stuff too. And music/OPs/soundtrack collections/artbooks/drama CDs. Nyaa may have them but they are rarely seeded. Also check out this massive list:

That means it's unencoded, right? Just direct from the disc? You'd need to burn it to a disc or use something like Virtual CloneDrive to watch it, right? Or can MPC-HC play iso files directly?

>>
>>117323563
An ISO is a disk image. You will need to mount it in a virtual drive like Alcohol 120%, and then you can "play" the DVD's videos from the menus as if you were playing it in a DVD player.

>>117323621

Looking it up, Alcohol 120% seems like the same basic thing.

I'm guessing he was being pretentious and saying that even DVD video is technically encoded to put it on the disc at all.

>>117323708
Ah, so he's trying to confuse the ISO guy. Very nice.
>>
>>117323674
The basic idea is that you're not going to play a DVD ISO file in MPC-HC. You need to "mount" the file in a program that emulates a disk drive, where it behaves like a DVD disk would behave if any of us still used optical drives anymore.
>>
>>117323774

From what I hear, the best route is to have an account at AB, and a high-ranking one at ADC (the AB account can be used to justify why you want in at ADC on your application). Since it's a Chinese tracker, hanging around QQ chat rooms is probably a good way to get in. I would also stay in the ADC IRC rooms for a while and meet some people.

You know what they say? If it sounds too good to be true... it's probably a honeypot.

Why do you want Bluray ISOs of Bakemonogatari? Are you planning on selling bootleg videos on ebay?

just started downloading shit about a week ago, I usually try and get only 1080p and what not, got a few shows dling at the moment, and yeah it's all entry level shit I guess though I'm trying to expand my taste, but i really don't know were to even start

Unless it is a movie, or they put out a blueray later then you are just wasting space on shitty upres.
>>
>>117325889
Never ever download 1080p for TV rips. They're always upscales. Most anime aren't 1080p. If you're watching 1080p anime, you're most likely watching anime that has been mastered at 540p or 720p and upscaled to 1080p, even for some BDs. It's only in rare instances (like movies, Nyaruko W, etc) that it's actually mastered in 1080p.
>>
>>117325889
Honestly most 1080p is not usually worth it. UNLESS FOR SURE IT'S A BLUERAY (BD) RIP. For the most part even BD's are still encoded in 720 and then upscaled. Anime movies are usually exempt from this.

TL;DR Most of your TV anime should be 720p bluray. If you sit far enough you really can't notice the difference in quality.

Thanks for the info, good to know since it was getting a bit ridiculous to download all these massive batches

>I'm trying to expand my taste,
I know people on /a/ say this all the time "try things out and see what your tastes are," but the truth is that you should already know what you like. This probably won't change too much until something about yourself changes, as with anything. What you want to do with anime is find out what kinds of anime suit the tastes that you already have.

For example, if you like romance in Western media, you may find that romance in anime is entirely unacceptable. Or if you like shoot-em-ups in Western media, you may find that you like mecha anime, even though there is no equivalent to mecha in Western media (also no true analogue to Western shoot-em-ups in anime).

I'm doing hard mode by limiting myself to a 500 GB HDD
>>
>>117326126
Keep in mind that some old shows, like the Eva TV series that you just downloaded, only come in DVD (480p). There's even some shitcases where the DVD is the best source for the show even if BDs exist because of NIPPON upscaling. This is really depends show to show, but quite a few shows in the late 1990s~2008 era have this problem.

>>117303552
This is their e-penis. Redditors have MAL accounts to fill that role, /a/utists here think that have terabytes of anime is somehow impressive and they also mistakenly believe that people give a fuck about it.
>>
>>117326322
>hard mode
That's called retard mode.
>>
>>117326055
If you're watching in fullscreen, your media player and video card are upscaling the content to your screen's resolution anyway. Your argument is only meaningful if you're watching anime in windowed mode at its native resolution, which most people aren't. I'd rather have someone who knows what they're doing take the time to upscale and fix major problems than just let MadVR and MPC do whatever they want on the fly.

>trying to expand my taste
Here's a tip from how I've been recently organizing my backlog

Have a designated "backlog" or some other name folder (mine's "future") for this. Any time you think that you might be interested in an anime (or other forms of media), do one of two things. One, find and download the best torrent file (the actual *.torrent) and put it in that folder. Alternatively, you could just make a folder with the thing you think you might want to watch on it in the folder name.

I organize the torrent files by renaming the torrent to the size of the download and the name of what it contains. I also have folders using the same format that contain multiple torrent files, or they contain torrent files and a couple other episodes (e.g. the Gen'ei folder contains three torrent files and three episodes which allow me to just use the full torrent files to download Final8's 1-10 and Underwater's 14, but I don't need a batch torrent because I already have 11-13 downloaded.

Some of these folders, like Spirited Away, contain multiple versions of the same thing whose total filesize adds up to the value on the folder. When I download it, I will download both versions and then delete the "bad" one, which I will only know after having downloaded both.

Another example is that the Fullmetal Alchemist folder contains torrent files for both seasons and both movies, but I already have the little side story/omake videos downloaded.

I'm currently downloading just episode one of different versions of Sora no Woto to be able to determine which version is the best, after which, I will delete all versions' videos and keep only the torrent file for use later. This is why I don't have a filesize on this folder.

I don't have a filesize on Gatchaman Crowds, because I am going to do the same process that I am currently doing for Sora no Woto to it.

For Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou, I have yet to look for torrent files, and the folder is there as a reminder of that

Too bad that most 1080p out there that aren't from BDs are Crunchyroll rips, and that sure as shit isn't from "someone who knows what they're doing". It's a streamrip in fact.
>>
I didn't stop streaming until around the time Madoka came out. Thank you /a/ for showing me the light, and that VLC is shit compared to MPCHC

If you're watching a 1080p from crunchyroll you're doing it wrong. They use almost the same bitrate for 1080p and 720p, so the 1080p looks worse.

For BD rips, it's worth it to get 1080p. With 720p, you end up with MPC trying to upscale an upscale. That's guaranteed to be eye cancer.

>>117327110
Yes, that's what I'm saying, too.
>>
I have 30 gigs left on my 2tb external and I don't know how to deal. I've already deleted all the shit that I can.

If I were to get another drive how the fuck would I sort shit? The idea of having to split all my chinese cartoons on two drives sounds like a nightmare to me.

If you're on Windows, use the Library feature to merge the folders.

Just my 2cents

Also if you see any spelling errors or shows I'm missing toss em out.

Also before you ask, Pluto is a external.
