it seems that, we love to store things that we don't actually use inside our hard disks. this could be human nature. ( we just love to possess ).

but, do we really need all this files? pictures? videos? isn't it we came on earth to detach ourself from worldly matters, to achieve enlightenment, total freedom? but why we keep on attaching our selves with worldly matters?

if we have some kinda big accidents, injury today, it seems that all that we felt important inside our hard disk, doesn't seem so important anymore.

since when we got the habits to keep/possess all things?

Because the very next day after you delete something is when you will need it.

Yes, it's the sad truth. Cool
For me the worst was "Oh, I can safely delete it, I have a copy/backup of it somewhere..." Yeah, and then that backup is not working. Or I didn't really make a copy. That's how the Titan OS got lost in the bit bucket.

There's just something magical about software. I don't collect much things, like "hardware" or "real stuff", but I do software (virtual). It just feels different.

When the internet archive has 100% coverage then I'll stop downloading.

Tomasz Grysztar, I have a copy of Titan OS! Very Happy
(oh, it's already in the other thread)

My assembly archive is over 1GB of source code going back several years (late 90's). It's a mess because I tried to sort it once by author, and so many people went by different handles. Some of the code is by talented people doing the "wrong thing", but I keep it for historical reasons. Trying to find something that was freely availble (like the L4 sources) and then actively taken down can be impossible.

does you guy archive files using ISO?
coz smaller files eats up lots of space if they are not packed into 1 file.

i personally use ISO because i could mount those iso into virtual drive and access to it, unlike zip file.

But ISO files also don't pack! It is just another file system within a single file. So, in terms of disk space, you are not saving anything by using ISO files.

At least a zip file will compress and save disk space.

It is always good to know that if I save only the files which I need to survive, then I am closer to enlightenment. Thanks.

give it a try, it really saves lot of space especially when you got lots of small files. probably due to cluster size.

Yup. In my case: MP3s.
"I think I already burned this album yesterday, so it's OK to delete it."
And the reality is I haven't burned it
Ouch... Laughing

My whole "stuff" would fit in some 64GB, but of course, not all the cache/kits or games.

And CDs/DVDs/whatever are unreliable. It happened to me more than on 4 CDs to malfunction -- luckily I didn't delete it from the harddrive, but at least I had the placebo of feeling 'safe'. Now I never feel safe when I have stuff only on CDs.

I have very few movies in xVid formats (just 2 lol), -- the rest are usually bought/gifts (i.e real factory DVDs with cover & all that).

@sleepsleep: PowerISO has some "compressed ISO" that should work with compression, of course only read-only but that's what ISOs are for anyway Razz

The problem with putting the file in another format comes down to the limitations of search for me. Data isn't as useful if you can't get at it. Utility comes before conservation. Wonder how close we can get to having both? Everyone knows how hard it is to search sites like MS or Intel -- too much information requires more librarians (virtual or real people). Organization is model specific, and so it evolves with the model (compounding the problem).

sleepsleep, for me even 1.4GB xVid movies (2 hours) look excellent with postprocessing. Try ffdshow (google), it's free. Though if you'll want quality you'll need a fast CPU, preferably quad core (I don't have now, but I've seen the quality -- with extreme lag Razz). Azumi, for example, looks excellent.

while taking my hours to manage the files into new hard disk... i somehow conceived that, what we actually need/use is just so tiny compare to what we want/desire.

i saw lots of files that....., God, i even wondering myself why i keep them in my hard disk for such a long time without open them???

all those zip source codes, why i keep them, it is not i will have time to study those codes or wat....

and will i rewatch those animes?? ... quite impossible, even if possible, it might be after several months later, then i rewatch it (but i quite doubt)... so, why we put all these files into our hard disk???


why we keep them?? this seems to break logic.
Rolling Eyes

the worse fact is, we preffer to search through google/yahoo rather than our own hard disk. so, maybe the file you are searching right now, was already downloaded last time by your own self laying somewhere inside your hard disk...
