Re: Storage

SSDs will be a better way to go once the price drops...better to wait for that time than jump on to the recordable Blu-Ray thing. You'll fit a load on each disc but it'll have all the same pifalls as CD/DVD.

If you trust a commercial online backup provider to remain in business - if they go under your backup may disappear (I have no idea whether Carbonite is currently financially stable or not, it's just a general rule I follow).

Re: Storage

I'll just say that more than half of my shows are on DVDr or CDR...
They will last longer on good media than on a HD... when you need to change it you simply burn a new disc of all the old info..

Saving on Hard Drives is risky business and NOT recommended - EVER..
Temporary space is all they are..
shutting them down and only using when needed doesn't seem safe as an electronic device.. ALL electronics FAIL at some point..... period.

Re: Storage

ok, so yeah... now i'm wondering if all my cd-r and dvd-r shows are even any good now. they've been in boxes for a year. guess i'll find out when i get my own place and unpack.

in the meantime,

1. can someone remind me of that site that traders used to use to put up the list of the shows we have? it wasn't etree, but can't remember name.

2. Guess external HD is the way to go for longterm storage for now. WD is still the way to go, yeah?

3. as for cd-r/dvd-r storage, suggestions as to which brands are considered best quality now? need to purchase online. so could use good price site suggestion also.

cheers,
stef

1. phishhook? tapetrader? bootlegzone?

2. I guess. Seagate is quite good I reckon.

3. I've been using this guide with good results: http://www.digitalfaq.com/reviews/dvd-media.htm

I bought here and their prices are good: http://www.supermediastore.com/

Re: Storage

The question was asked

"how long will data survive on a drive once it is full and turned off?"

and replied "1 month - 2 years"

Where's the support for this? Tests by the HDD manufacturers? Tests by computing labs or magazine testers? Please tell.
