Ok /g/. I download roughly 10-20gb of japanese adult videos every day. It has reached the point where my 3tb and 2tb drive are completely filled up. This is forcing me to delete older videos to allow me to download newer ones, which kills me a little bit inside.
I have 2 more 3tb drives, but I don't have extra room in my case because my graphics card is so huge that I have to remove the HDD cage (fractal r4) to fit it inside.
I figure I should just purchase a hotswappable HDD bay so I can organize my files without having to replacing the cabling in my drives every time. This would also allow me to keep the drives off and prevent wearing and heating issues to prolong the life of my drives.
Do you guys have any recommendations for a decently priced drive bay or docking station that holds 3.5" drives?
Why would you even need that much space? Unless you dedicate entire weeks to a single fap where you watch every single video start to end, there is NO FUCKING reason to even fathom needing that much porn just hoarded. I mean god damn man, ever heard of streaming? Or not saving every piece of chinks gone wild.
>I download roughly 10-20gb of japanese adult videos every day
I think you might need some help. I'm not judging the preference, but that's clearly a bad addiction, unless you're just a master of multi-tasking.
The cage is split into two. The bottom half supports 3 hard drives. You can fit another two in the 5.25" bays with an adapter. Also the Tri-X is 30cm but I still think it could fit with both in there. Haven't tried it though.
Here's a pic but not my setup
That has nothing to do with downloading and storing 10-20 GB of video each day. What do you do with the videos after that? If you find new ones every day are you even watching the old ones? Instead of finding a storage solution you need to decide which videos are really worth keeping and delete the rest.
Yeah but sometimes there's something good in each video that makes me want to keep it. It could be the actress, the scenario, or the performance.
True though, most of the videos I have are filled with complete, generic shit. But sometimes it's worth keeping to see the scene with the mom sedating her son so she can dress up in kinky lingerie and ride his unconscious body into the ground, just to have him wake up and goad him into a lifetime of consensual, familial sex. Or the occasional video where there's a scene with one of my favorite actresses.
Yes I have a lot of those
Don't fucking do it. I was in the same boat as you, and planned to get a swappable bay and a big expensive pelican case to store the drives. I got 4 drives and started transferring my files, and after I was done for a few days I relized just how inconivent it was to have to get the drive and find what I was looking for, and I really would need a spreadsheet to track it all.
After that I said fuck it and bought a NAS. I was going to build one but with the number of drives I wanted, and how quiet a prebuilt was, and how much smaller it was, I decided to get it.
Now I have every video indexed, searchable, and available from every TV and device in my home. I wouldn't want it any other way.
I'm not OP but I'm assuming he has already been doing that. You can still accumulate a bunch over time.
I have maybe 3TB of porn because I just download siterips that I'm too lazy to go through to delete all the shit. Doesn't really matter to me though since I just put it on old drives that I wouldn't be using anymore anyway.
coolermaster CM690. Holds my drives, hides my rad.
I'm out of bays, so my SSD just chills on the bottom. Also out of SATA ports, so my newer drives are external.
Do you actually watch them later, or do you just hoard them? There is a huge difference. Maybe you could tune your habits.
oh the kind where they censor the dick, right. lolling. lolling all over the floor so hard my sides are actually beginning to tingle and pinch and hurt a bit.
no brah im just not into censored porn the effect is lessened. literally demented.
My nigga. I still have a working one from 2003
>tfw barely any USB 3 ports on myprebuilt
>No extra space for a hard drive either
Whatever I only paid like 400 dollars for it but it sucks only being able to hold maybe a max of 4TB+internal
my dream is to be able to be financially secure enough to retire, allowing me to spend my entire time documenting every single JAV release and eventually starting a fansubbing group for japanese adult videos akin to anime. This business will eventually fluorish where I will act as a gateway for inviting japanese adult video companies to license their product domestically in the US and become extremely successful, making myself rich, while also further propelling and legitimizing the japanese adult video industry to prosperity
Dust and static elec would be a problem if you leave it exposed for long periods of time.
You could always build a plexy glass enclosure with some vent holes though.
>I'm deciding if to buy an internal hd and a usb to sata cable or an enclosure with a fan
In your death bed, when reviewing your life, your values and what you lived for, your face will be priceless. I wish I can be there and see you, you worthless cancer.
Pretty amazing that there some people whose life goal is helping humanity to evolve, to achieve global piece, cleaning our mess and making our planet a better place for the next generations, etc. and then there are sad and miserable people like you existing among us as well.
yea. I think I have over 2tb of incest Japanese Adult Videos. I really love this genre because I think it is the best at depicting the apex of sexual consent. Usually the narratives start out where they are disgusted when the son/brother is checking out or rubbing his sister's/mom's pussy that they run away, hesitantly. However they begin to finger themselves, unable to escape the thought of having daily sex in their household because they are so sexually oppressed. This is when they snap and then actually start SEDUCING the son/brother. This is the essence of what I want in a woman. I really want to know that feeling of having a woman GENUINELY wanting to suck my cock, taste my seed, and then express the same feeling by spitting my own cum back into my mouth as we lock lips and make out. I want a woman who will have sex with me and beg for me to pound her, moaning my name and she can't get enough of me that we have sex all night long for days straight.
Basically, it would further my visceral experience as I consume these videos.
As long as it keeps working, i'm gonna keep using it. I've never gotten so much mileage with so little effort before. Last time some guy got legitimately shook. I finally broke down and bought another external so i could pool all the stuff i was storing on my laptops.
And here you are thinking any of that matters, when in reality you will be nothing but another insignificant speck, leaving nothing behind when people like me null your legacy
After you finish watching a video, immediately rar it with the highest compression levels and delete the origional. You still have it, but it will take you an hour to extract. Should save 25% space.
You know I've been meaning to rename the files with actress names and titles, but there's simply too many files. Instead I just seek through each one until I find something that interests me that I can blow my load to. This usually takes 2 hours.
Even with KGB you're not gonna get 25% compression rates, ever. And even if you were you'd have to spend hours compressing each and every file and the same again to extract them.
idk man to make my comment stand out more? lemme guess, 3dpd? loser ass.
I'd like to thank my mom and also my dad for nothing
Well, when the internet goes down, i'll be the king of sneakernet.
It's nice to be able to just hit random and watch something you haven't seen in a while. Or when i have friends over being able to just pick watch something one of them specifically wanted to see without having to stumble through netflix hoping it's there or paying $8 for a 24 hour yify-level rental off PSN if it's even there or scouring local stores who have 3000 copies of transformers 2 and none of idiocracy or oldboy or taxi driver.
I got into the habit as a matter of cost, and can't get out over a matter of convenience.
It's clean, i idle at 52*c, i can drop it to about 42*c disabling the TV and a monitor, but it is a really hot card.
Since you're actually using that for movies and not porn you should really just build a NAS.
I used to be like you with a mass amount of random storage. It's just so much simpler with a large pool that you can stream anywhere around the house.
Get the hotswap bay, move all your porn to one drive, then have seperate drives for your special time from your typical usage, if it is needed buy a shitty 6tb and keep it there until you can afford a bigger case and then get a bunch of 2 or 3s
It's not really random piles.
I prefer everything just being in the one be-all end-all always on unit, so when i'm on the road, i can tie in with teamviewer, download a bunch of stuff, send it to the thumb drive, and just swap thumb drives or get someone to do it for me and bring it out.
Home for 8 hours between week long stints, you don't want to waste time fucking with things.
I'm a wizard.
That sounds even more worthy of a NAS to me, unless someone else is using your computer. Big waste of electricity leaving a 290 running all the time. The idle with multi monitor is pretty bad.
Yeah it's still really inefficent. And honestly its only going to be useful in high bitrate HD scenarios. For your standard def content and even 720/1080p rips x264 will beat it.
You could also recompress it to a lower quality, and keep the original torrent magnet along with it.
I think raring it might be the best. Someone might have an automated script to rar/recompress at a lower bitrate or resolution.
If the videos have credits, cutting them out and replacing them with text files might save space.
Those are so tempting. $250 for 8TB.
I'm going to wait until I see reviews with a good torture test. It's new tech with layered data too so things can easily go wrong here.
Why haven't you updated?
But seriously. Get a NAS OP.
JAVs especially. Don't get me wrong, I love my asian porn as much as the next guy but realistically there's only 20 mins of good content in a 2 hr jav, No way he needs to keep everything he's keeping
wow just imagine how much cock-jerkin this guy does. I think we have found a new superhero ULTIMATE WANKER
pic related its the op
Western porn manages it just fine. Everythingbutt used to do a lot of enema stuff, and there's a lot of stuff with milk/whipped cream these days, but for whatever reason American porn requires the actresses to pretend like they're enjoying the sensation of having a liter of water pumped into their colons and the fake moans just ruin it
I use the Probox 8 Bay, the newest one support at least 4TB HDDs.
Yes that's 8 4TB drives with it's own power and cooling running on ESATA or USB 3.0
im just gonna make a raid out of some 3.5" hdds when i build myself a personal computer. right now im on my sixth year of the same laptop as a desktop pc
why do you have so many different hard disk drives from different sizes and different manufacturers? why do you have 3tb hard disk drives instead of 4tb hard disk drives? are 4tb hard disk drives not safe to buy yet or are 3tb hard disk drives cheaper in the long run?
>tfw I'm getting there
>tfw about 4.5 TB of porn in truecrypt partitions
>eventually somebody's gonna ask "what are all of these external hdds lying here?"
I've repeatedly found that using the highest level 7zip compression on files that are already heavily compressed tends to make the resulting archive bigger than the original files.
