It's ALIVE! 2TB External HDD
#1
After some aggravation and headaches I finally got my 2,000GB external RAID0 hard drive setup and working. As you may have seen in a previous post, I had bought an external HDD enclosure that holds two drives and you can set them up in something called a RAID array which makes them work like one giant drive and even makes them a little faster. Getting the hardware together was easy enough despite the terrible instructions in the manual. Thanks to some research online, I found out how to REALLY do it. I had trouble getting Windows to treat it properly as ONE giant drive instead of two drives but finally got it straight. Unfortunately, by the time you format the drives and crap it actually only ends up being 1.81TB. But now I've got all the room in the world to backup all of my family photos, videos and documents PLUS store and hide my massive porn collection. HOORAY! Check it out...

I have looked at those myself for one of these days when I get around to building my multimedia server. Pretty sweet.

And I still remember paying $660 for a 1.6gb hard drive and thinking I would never need any more capacity than that. HAH!

I just did the math. That should hold 477,000 songs. I found a general rule of thumb on the net that said you generally get 1 minute of music per MB. If the average song is 4 minutes then it should hold about 477,000 songs. Could you imagine trying to organize and browse 477,000 songs? HOLY CRAP.

Ummm, so far I've got roughly 4,000 videos at a total of 750GB. I've got the original download folder that I DL them into but then I go through them and only keep the good ones which I move over to a good folder and I delete the crappy ones. My plan is much like the OLPC project only with porn.

(OLPC = One Laptop Per Child. It's the project of giving kids everywhere throughout the world a cheap laptop with which to access the net where they can then view my porn collection).:lol:
