What's your preferred method of saving anime?

Hundreds of DVD-R's or a few harddrives?

If the latter, internal or externals (or internals with external cases)?
>>
Saving? Wat?

A friend lol
He lives in whoop whoop for the government.

So when he comes over I exchange an external hard drive with anime. He merrily goes home, backs it up twice, one for him and one for myself on dvd's as thanks for downloading the anime.

Preferred? TB hard drives in a RAID 5 configuration.

Now, DVD R discs
>>
Backed up and archived on a bunch of externals. My dream is to have a bookcase full of them.

Unplugged? That would be awesome, especially with these types. You've just got to catalog what's in each.
>>
>>11325979

I delete the fansubs after watching them then buy the R1 DVDs when they come out.
>>
>>11326069

A jolly good laugh. Yes, it would be ideal but the problem remains for shows that never get licensed, which is quite a lot.
>>
>>11326112

This is true, but i've never had problems with redownloading shows for rewatching.

I'd prefer two TB HDs in Raid 0, but I use DVDs right now.
>>
got 2 tb drives in raid1 plus two 300, one 500 and a 160 gb drive.
>>
>>11326149
Sometimes seeds dissapear.
>>
>>11326039
With the way hard drives are going now, I don't think you'll ever realize that dream. Even at 1080p, you can fit a few years worth of anime on a 1 TB hard drive.
>>
>>11326152

The problem, though, with RAID 0 is if one drive fails the contents are unrecoverable.
>>
>>11326163

Again, this is true.

I've never had an issue with that though.
>>
I delete them after some time when I'm sure I don't want to rewatch them
>>
>>11326221

Not that, that matters if you're usually only using one hard drive without backups anyway.
>>
>>11326221
oops

I meant RAID 1

>>11326310
The chance of complete data loss is doubled with RAID 0.

External server.
>>
>>11326200
sadly, I have a 2.5TB server already full with my animu and music... 1 TB does not go far these days!
>>
>>11326334

Correct. For those without data protection knowledge, who are following this discussion, when purchasing hard drives for RAID or back up purposes make sure to buy different brands or manufacturing batches to help negate the odds of a bad batch of drives. If nothing else, this should help in preventing multiple drives from dieing at the same time due to internal mechanical failure.

A few DVD-R's after the series is finished and my External HDs are full.
I'm too lazy to burn all of 'em into DVDs.

I wish I had the money to buy bigger than 250GB external HDs, but I had to be a weeaboo and buy a bunch of /fig/s.

Fuck you, my inner weeaboo, fuck you.
