Serious Backup…

Posted by delta on 14th February 2009

Just backed up my “iTunes”.  I actually have it on an external HD because it’s too big (850 GB).  

439 movies @ 390 GB

1,119 individual shows @ 432 GB (that’s 75+ Seasons of various TV Shows)

The rest is music…

Very glad to have a backup of it all – I was freaking out for a week or so.  That was a lot of work…

Just noticed that the numbers are below – sorry about the redundancy there people!  May have been bragging a bit…

The quest for a decent HD

Posted by delta on 14th February 2009

Just got another Terabyte HD – my two 500 GB HD’s both died last week. I was using them to backup my 1 Terabyte “iTunes” HD. Normally, one wouldn’t care – but I spent a lot of time converting all my DVD’s (both movies and TV shows) and VHS tapes into mp4’s that I could then put in iTunes and sync with my iPod and iPhone…

I don’t wanna do that again – took a few years. So I’m backing it up to another HD the same size…

If you had 432 GB of TV Shows and 390 GB if movies on one device, with no backup, you would be nervous too…

Training…

Quite funny…

Not sure what to think about it yet…

Probably should actually get there first…

Not looking forward to the bumpy plane ride – there’s a high-wind advisory tomorrow (50 mi/hr winds) so we may not be going anywhere…

Whatever…
