How much of your hard drive is anime and manga, Sup Forums?

Jacob Williams

I have an almost full 2TB, as well as four LTO3 tapes filled with anime.

Jackson Robinson

Out of 5.45 TB, I've 4.64 TB is anime, then I've got another drive with an additional TB.

Christian Harris

That can't be all anime, unless that's an external hard drive.

Brandon Watson

371GB of anime and 33GB of manga on a 500GB drive.

Lincoln Thompson

485GB of anime.

5GB of pics and colouring in fap comics.

Getting a new 2TB external later this month.

Anthony White

I don't hoard digital media unless it's music.

Jaxson Thompson
Jaxson Thompson

At least 3 or 4 TB. Of which there's at least a terabyte of manga.

Brody Sanchez
Brody Sanchez

I really need to get a new HDD.

I also have most of the Gundam Series and the Patlabor TV series in my D: drive.

Cooper Edwards
Cooper Edwards

320 GB of anime

But will transfer them to my 2tb external drive and then torrent more anime since most of them are shitty 480p downloaded anime

Xavier Howard

I am a streamer.

Brayden Brown

What's the purpose of hoarding all this anime?
It's not like you're going to back and rewatch all of this shit or anything like that

Camden Sullivan
Camden Sullivan

nice try

Logan Davis
Logan Davis

when shit hits the fan and the internet stops working (caps, censorship, licensed only access, etc) i will have terabytes of my favorite shows and music archived
you'll have nothing
happy to share though if we could somehow start a harddrive mailing tree or something
we got you covered user

Cooper Reyes
Cooper Reyes

I delete anime that I don't plan to rewatch, and I usually read manga on batoto or on my tablet. So probably about 200-500GB, which are the series I'm currently watching or plan to watch/rewatch in the foreseeable future.
I do store a lot of shit on my drive though, so 2TB isn't enough for me anymore.

Grayson Long
Grayson Long

I like being able to have the BDs of shows.
Also every other year or so I have to sit in the desert for six months, having a huge backlog I can pull from at a moment's notice works great in that situation.

Blake Nguyen
Blake Nguyen

I have a couple hundred gigs of detective conan laying around.

Justin Davis
Justin Davis

194 GBs on a 1.36 TB external. Most of it is a bloated Ghibli compilation release that I downloaded.

I delete after finishing.

Thomas Lee

1 gig

That's it

Bentley Wilson

Thats not even a single hd episode. Im legit not sure why your browsing Sup Forums?

Nathaniel Reed

I have a full 250GB external and am working on a 1TB one. I'd probably already have the 1TB filled up but I bought a ton of BDs last year and deleted a bunch of my downloads since I didn't need them anymore.

Luke Myers
Luke Myers

This is after I remuxed all the dual-audio releases and re-encoded flacs for almost every release to libfdk_aac with batch ffmpeg commands.

Gavin Wilson

I just needed to move up to a new external now that my shit I've finished watching adds up to 2TB.

Jonathan Murphy

There are going to be thousands of people offering to make copies of their hard drives for a reasonable fee or otherwise. I feel safe.

Isaiah Brown
Isaiah Brown

they'll laugh you off because you didn't store anything to trade.

you know, someone has to make those copies.

Charles Myers

I host a media server for my friends. easy to recommend stuff if they have easy access to it

Carson Richardson
Carson Richardson

The problem is gonna be contacting them and the logistics of dealing with drives and them not being shitheads and everything happening in a timely manner.
The other problem is when everyone just assumes what you have, that someone else will take care of it - Then no one does and it's all gone forever. (This actually happened with the Grateful Dead in their late middle years - Everyone just assumed someone else was taping the show. Turns out for many, no one was and the only recordings today are incomplete and shit.)
I know that I am not a shithead (I won't even charge, that's fucked up) and I am indeed archiving tons of shit - But it's just the shit I happen to like and I can only make so many copies so fast etc.
And the reality is, if shit really hits the fan like this, we prolly will have more important things to worry about - Who knows if sharing physical drives will even be possible at that point.

Nathaniel Mitchell
Nathaniel Mitchell

Thank god I became scum and started to watch streamed anime. I check the avilable stream quality and then weigh it up against the quality of avilable downloads. 80% of the time I can just open notepad and pick something to watch online.

That feel when your 500gb backlog is wiped off your HDD

Gabriel Roberts
Gabriel Roberts

I need more space but I'm worried I'll break something by adding more internal drives and hate external ones.

Christian Morris
Christian Morris

The primary HD? None. It's a 150gb SSD that's 50% Windows 7, 20% Adobe CS6, 20% images for shitposting on Sup Forums. The remainder is virtual RAM.

Even my secondary is only 10% manga, 15% anime, and 40% visual novels.

Eli Morales
Eli Morales

Probably not the best place to ask this, but i diden't want to shit up your board with my own thread.

What is a good 1-2 season anime that a pleb can get into? With the exception of the 'Normie tier' anime (DBZ, KLK, attack on titan) I've only seen:
steel angel kurumi
Gantz
Tri gun
Noir
Thank you friends.

P.S. I have a thing for tsundere girls if that helps.

Kayden Morales

For someone as pleb as you you don't even need to post. Just lurk someone else's generic "what animes r gud" thread and choose a name that sticks out.

Tyler Reed

746 GB between my computer and my HDD, not counting my anime reaction folder, anime music, hentai, ecchi, and manga.

Brayden Cooper
Brayden Cooper

I stream anyways.

Noah Green

I wish I understand what all that meant.

Owen Cruz
Owen Cruz

Around 2tb, scared to even organize it either if it wasn't released in a batch it's probably single files all together in 1 folder from the folder I send all downloads too. Probably around 300gb of copies or downloads from alternate subgroups when good subs aren't out on time.

Matthew Baker
Matthew Baker

200GB external - full
1TB external - full
2TB external - full
3TB external - about 25% full

Shows I particularly like are on two drives instead of one. Fortunately, I haven't had any HD failures yet, despite the smallest being close to 10 years old by now.

Parker Reyes
Parker Reyes

What's the best way to do it? I have things just sitting around on externals but I know it's not a long-term solution.

Luke Cruz

mfw I take my external HD every day to work
How prone is it to fuck up? Passportfag here.

Owen Diaz

Depends on the drive. I had an older model with a WD Black drive in it. Sucker went to Iraq and back and 4years of school. Still works great.

Tyler Sanders

Did you see any brown lolis?

Cameron Ramirez

200GB IIRC. (HDs are expansive in my country)

Nathaniel Kelly

Half of my RAID5.

Dylan Flores
Dylan Flores

How much of your hard drive is anime and manga, Sup Forums?

Only ecchi anime, so I don't need more than this.

Holy

Daniel Russell
Daniel Russell

This is the majority, there is a few hundred more GB of stuff that isn't sorted or is hentai that is located somewhere else.

Robert Morgan
Robert Morgan

None, because I stream anime. I'm only going to watch it once so whats the point in downloading it to my hard drive, I'd be a waste of space.

Juan Davis
Juan Davis

You can't avoid sudden drive failures

Wyatt Campbell
Wyatt Campbell

all those streamfags

Jack Edwards
Jack Edwards

Mostly free, and what I do have is mostly videogames.
Why would you keep manga and anime saved, if you arent watching/reading it?
If it's great then I will buy it, but I dont see the point in leaivng stuff clutter up my PC.

How much of that content is 2hu?
My 2hu is a pitiful 3k files.

Brody Campbell
Brody Campbell

Nowadays streams have quality comparable to downloadable anime. There is no noticeable difference unless you're watching it on a huge screen.
What's your point?

It's kinda like with online manga readers. They used to be shit because of compression and watermarks, but now we have batoto which left no reason to download manga other than for archiving or reading it on a portable device. Although I think they're removing some licenced stuff now, which is very unfortunate.

Blake Morris
Blake Morris

I have 2 3TB drives. The first one is full and the second one is 60% full. I'm pretty new to anime though, I've only seen 17 shows, got them by some group called coalgirls.

Caleb King
Caleb King

quality comparable to downloadable anime
unless you're watching it on a huge screen
So in the same sense you shit and a gourmet steak is comparable. you can compare them, that doesn't mean the outcome will be favorable.

Landon Smith
Landon Smith

Heh.

Christian Long
Christian Long

quality was always just a tertiary bonus
downloading is about having a copy that you are in full control over
it's about being able to choose whatever subs you want
it's about censorship and no one else being able to remove something you should have access to
it's about freedom

Adrian Myers
Adrian Myers

No, it's never been about those things. It's always been quality elitism. Like with MPC-CCC vs VLC.

Luis Long
Luis Long

I remember when I had well over 2TB Touhou stuff myself.
I god disinterested of Touhou almost completely in the past few years though and my TH folder is only 142GB anymore.

Ian Turner
Ian Turner

I delete my animes after watching them

Kayden Richardson
Kayden Richardson

in the 3u server at the bottom - yuyuko, she handles file and print serving - 6 x 2TB drives in RAID10

How much of that content is 2hu?

on yuyuko - almost none - 20GB of music maybe

Landon Allen
Landon Allen

And the cost? I really want to have a giant pool of space so I can setup auto syncing and backing up to a local server but have next to no idea about the hardware involved.

Charles Green
Charles Green

hard to say, used parts I had left over along with buying things incrementally

say

£55 for motherboard + cpu
£20 for ram
£25 for raid card + battery backup
£40 for case
£20 for PSU
£300 for 6 2TB drives

could easily make something similar for much less - look into hp microservers, can get some of those at very reasonable prices

Lucas Sullivan
Lucas Sullivan

I feel honored knowing that you posted in my thread.

Jonathan Diaz

0TB

Zachary Wilson
Zachary Wilson

I've slowly been deleting as I've been rationing my hard drive space as other things take up space, it's a couple hundred gigabytes or something

I've stuck myself at a single terabyte for years and I'm going for a 2gb external drive soon

I wonder what that room looks like right now.
Your room will never be that glorious
Just the price of tatami mats made you give up on the idea of improving your shithole.

David Harris

Somewhere around 50GB

My connection is fast enough so that whatever I want is downloaded by the time I've taken a pre-watch piss.

Owen Jenkins

None, I stream in 480p

Isaac King

Three 4TB drives?

Jaxon Nelson
Jaxon Nelson

I have around 0.5 TB on my external harddrive filled up. Theres a few western shows but I'd say its roughly 85% anime.

Bentley Howard
Bentley Howard

Been watching since Jan 2013, 3 TB now.

Matthew Jackson
Matthew Jackson

I've got a pair of 2 tb external drives that I use to store he highest quality copies I could find of about 100~ series/films I love, with a few more added each year.

Got another 1 tb drive of artbook/light novel/fanbook/etc. for those same series, plus a few general ones just from authors/artists I like.

Currently planning to buy a 4tb drive to start stockpiling manga, and then burn everything to a fat stack of BDs just to be safe.

I'm doing this solely because I'm convinced one day this shit will be damn near impossible to pirate as copyright holders continue to clamp down hard on it.

Wyatt Clark
Wyatt Clark

Also every other year or so I have to sit in the desert for six months
Why?

Caleb Diaz

Aiden Anderson

Almost 2 TB, but most of them on externals

I know you need to back your hard drives, but how do you back up your back ups? And how about your backup backups? And so on? Will this cycle ever end?

Benjamin Bennett
Benjamin Bennett

Just set up a RAID, when one fails just buy another

David Lee
David Lee

Some of it isn't anime and I have another ~60GB of anime movies. Only download 1080p Blu-ray rips if I can, but have only been downloading for a few months as I streamed before that.

Jordan Butler

Nice to know I'm not the only one that pretends I'm not a weeb.

Ayden Mitchell

My other HDD died with 3 TB of anime, now I only got ~800 GB.

Blake King
Blake King

4x5TB array 99% full, out of which anime 58% manga 5% h-doujins and h-manga 11%. Then various backup external drives, no idea of the percentages. Most likely two thirds at least anime+manga.

Logan Mitchell
Logan Mitchell

1.21 TB, and I think I have a pretty insignificant collection.

Benjamin Ramirez
Benjamin Ramirez

Around 500GB on my 1TB but then I dropped it, the spindle got stuck, I need to fix it temporarily and salvage what I can asap.
I named it "loliprison" ;_; RIP. I'll get two this time maybe an SSD.

Ayden Nguyen
Ayden Nguyen

Just set up a RAID
I might be nitpicking, but it would be best to specifiy the type of RAID. RAID 0 wouldn't do much for fault tolerance.

Dominic Ward
Dominic Ward

Lost count after 4 HDDs. Rest what I haven't bought already on DVD is burned on DVD. How else would one storage fucking 172 episodes of Inuyasha and all the other shit? Maybe about 6 TB?

Evan Kelly

It's a bit more than this, i keep actual season stuff seperate.

Mason Brown

There are no screenshots and very little seperate subtitle files.

Most of my anime are for archiving purposes so only 480p-720p.

Asher Fisher

Wasting hdd space on anime you already watched and will likely never watch again
thought saving hentai is a good idea considering that you jerk off to it frequently

Juan Fisher
Juan Fisher

I just realized that the one kind anime I regularly rewatch is the one I stream. Their quality is so shit to begin with I don't bother downloading any.

Jordan Lopez
Jordan Lopez

Nah it's for Plex's file ordering

Sebastian Rodriguez

I know some massive shitcunt that only saves 360p rips;maybe less than 360p to save space because he watches shounen shit with a ton of episodes. The nigger is literally up to date with One Piece.

1 if you have only 2 HDDs, 5 if more.

About 1TB. I need to clean it up a bit though. I prefer to keep only my favourite shows.

How the fuck do I organize my Sup Forums images?

I have 30 gigabytes of them, all in a single folder.

Jaxson Sullivan
Jaxson Sullivan

I don't save anime since it's a retarded thing to save things that you already watched and make it waste space by not rewatching it, although I do have a hentai stash that's relatively small

Just under 40GB at the moment. 2 terrabytes if I count hentai though.

You don't. Name them usefully and stick em all in the same folder.
