External HD then convert to AVI and burn to DVD for archival\back-up purposes.

say what you must about AVI, but this doesn't mean i delete it off my HD which i keep them in mkv format.

The 2TB is for anime that isn't recent (pre-winter 2012 since that's when I started watching airing anime) the 750GB is for recent stuff + music, eroge,etc and the 500GB is for backing up stuff I need to have at least two (actually three if you include my local hdd) copies of.

Been buying internal and external drives for many years. Seagates I really wouldn't trust. With WD externals, if they go, it's usually just the board / power so you can still grab the data. Seagates haven't seemed to last much longer than their warranty, and they aren't any quieter than WDs.

>>121974723
I record everything I've seen on my MAL account because playing MMOs for 10+ years left me mentally scarred and I release dopamine whenever I finish a show and add another completed show on my list.

I don't archive or back up my anime because I have access to the fucking internet. It's not going to go away any time soon, and if it does go away, it will probably be a result of some societal breakdown and if that happens, I'd have bigger problems to worry about that my Chinese cartoon archive.

The only things I keep on my HDD is my backlog, and I usually keep anime there for six months max. If I haven't seen it in that time period, I probably never will so I just delete it. It's a nice way to motivate myself to watch it and to keep my HDDs from getting full of garbage that would just sit there for years.

>>121977355
a lot more efficient to get a dock+drives than multiple externals especially when doing archive stuff

>>121977474
I want to make use of the icons I have for each season. Only time I combine seasons is when the show was split cour like in Valvrave or Fate/Zero.
>>121977532
I got a good deal on the external ($50 for 1TB), and I thought it would take more time to fill it up. I plan to buy a dedicated HDD for archiving in the future but having it on an external is nice as I can hook it up to my laptop and watch stuff on the TV in the living room.

That one thread notwithstanding, this is just confirmation bias by butthurt newfags or cancerous shitposters.

A /v/ermin goes to /a/ and makes a thread about how amazing Cowboy Bebop is and how they don't make great anime like that and gets laughed at and his thread gets deleted. He goes back to /v/, mad, makes a thread about Cowboy Bebop there, and all the other /v/ermin join in and talk about how amazing Cowboy Bebop is and how they all have better taste in anime than /a/ does.

Or a /pol/luter goes to /lit/ and tries to make an intellectual philosophical thread about, say, Ayn Rand, like a billion other /pol/luters did before him, /lit/ shits on him, and he goes back to his hugbox board and talks to other /pol/luters how /pol/ is a billion times better /lit/ than /lit/ is.

It's almost always cases like this. People with little knowledge of a subject have entry level, pop opinions on a subject and when confronted by people who have actually talked about it a bit more, get mad since these people obviously do not agree with their common knowledge, so they go back to where they came from and talk to other people like themselves, who all share the same opinion, so they circlejerk about how better they are at X than X board.

I mean, in some cases, the X board is the worst board for discussing X subject (e.g. /v/ for video games), but more often than not, this "meme" is just angry idiots consoling other angry idiots.

This is going to sound dumb, but I've been backing up my favorite series LaserDisc.
I had an uncle who must have really bought into the LaserDisc craze. When he passed my family got his equipment which includes a high quality player and a writer/burner and a couple crates/boxes of unused discs.
It's not too bad actually picture quality is good, you also don't have to flip the disc like with movies since anime eps are short.

I probably should, but I don't have THAT much archived. I usually clean up my archive every 6 months or so.

Everything in my archive, aside from one or two shows, I've seen at least 3 times. I always make an icon with a red border, slap it on a folder, and get to watching whatever it is I'm watching.

Speaking of gutting externals you can grab a 2TB seagate backup plus external HDD for like $90 gut it and have a 2TB 2.5 inch Samsung Spinpoint drive and a free USB 3.0 controller. You save like $60 than if you were to buy the barebones equivalent.

the problem with them is that they use a proprietary backup solution. no public apis where you could just dump some encrypted ZFS export or anything like that. and windows/mac only.

Why would you ever need to do that for anime? Just put it in a RAID 6 array and save your money.

You would be surprised at how many shows from back in 2008 just aren't there anymore, not on bots, not on torrents, not in stores. Mind you, I was burning shit up on DVDs then, and I don't even dare trying if those discs still even bloody work. And if they do, the stuff is like, 176MB xvid/mp3 avi episodes, the size of a postage stamp. Bloody anime for ants. Still, my nearly a decade old stash of about 200 DVDs is kinda "nostalgia". Back then, someone made me a gift of a 100 recordables, I still have to use it up, which is hard because I CBA.

Other than that, I have 0.5TB of what I call "keep 'em" shows (which I have backed up on same-size external, so I can always free up space by dumping them off internal storage).

I also use about 0.4TB of interim space, both reserved inside and on a small, old external which I use for random backup. That's where the current shows go.

Most shows start in interim, languish there for 6-12 months, while I ask myself a question "do you EVER want to see that show again?". For most shows, the "NO" comes sooner or later, and I delete them. If something makes me feel it's worth keeping and may not be available, I may dip into that stash of ancient DVDs and burn it. And very rarely, something might earn a spot on the "keep 'em" drive.

I don't expect to run out of space anytime soon.

Two big things kill drives: Bad power and manufacturing defects.

Bad power will fuck up both drives in a raid array.
Manufacturing defects tend to come in lots. If you have two identical drives you bought at the same time from the same place, in all likelyhood they will fail within two weeks of one another.

Raid is not a backup solution.

I don't because External HD's are expensive as fuck. If the anime was good enough that I think I'd eventually wanna rewatch it (literally never) I'd just keep it and delete everything else.
>>
>>121986306
>Bad power will fuck up both drives in a raid array.
Usually only the PCB, sometimes preamp. Those are relatively easy fixes provided you have a compatible donor PCB. The data is still working.

You can't account for all kinds of hardware failure, but having a RAID1 which will let you recover an exact copy when one drive fails or a RAID5 which lets you use parity to account for a stale drive in the occasion one drops out is the best you're going to get outside of using some pretty complex solution like tape archive.

This is fine in a large scale deployment where there is a large enough number of drives the ups and downs happen frequently and matching pairs aren't really pairs by serial number, but it's fucking useless for regular joe and his one computer. NAS, a usb/esata external, or a backup server are much more suited to the task and much less risky.

/g/entooman here. Hitachi HDs have the best reliability, but they are also more expensive. Do not buy WD greens. They have this thing where the read/write head goes from active to rest a million times a day to save power, which murders durability.

Also my setup is pic related. HDD just came in the mail today. $350 in hardware dedicated to downloading and storing chinese cartoons. Am I doing this right?

>NAS[...]backup server
But it depends on what configuration those are running too, really. At the end of the day, it's going to be a moot point if those solutions are ALSO using a dodgy configuration and/or there's the chance of those failing in certain ways too. And if you're using the NAS with a solution where there's no redundancy/duplication losing one drive has the potential to lose you an entire drive's worth of data anyway.

I'd say that I've had better experiences with flash storage for reliability, but my M500 malfunctioned with a TRIM glitch last week.
