100,000 Files
« on: October 14, 2016, 09:40:38 pm »

The odometer just rolled over on my my JRiver library!  Ok, not really, but my last import reported 100,000 Files in the library.  I just wanted to say how impressed I am that the user interface is every bit as responsive as when I started with JRiver with a paltry 30,000 files.  Here's to the next 100,000  ;D

Wow, nice! What's the stats on the type of files?

Personally, I just went past 80,000 files in my library (all lossless FLAC music files) so hopefully in a few years my odometer will roll over too. ;)

I'm jealous. That must be approaching a full year of continuous listening. Out of curiosity (and not at all meaning to be nasty), what proportion have you listened to at least once? If your collection started out as CDs which you ripped, there have to be some in there you ripped but will never again listen to (e.g. Boris Godunov in my case).

Personally, I just went past 80,000 files in my library (all lossless FLAC music files) so hopefully in a few years my odometer will roll over too. ;)

The composition is as follows:

61,000 music files, 36,000 of which are .FLAC, and 25,000 .mp3s.  There are about 30,000 images and home movies, and about 4,100 Video Files. 

I try to buy or rip to FLAC whenever possible, but I have some older rips that I can no longer re-rip (because of disk damage) and digital downloads are rarely available in FLAC (for the kinds of music I'm buying).

I'm jealous. That must be approaching a full year of continuous listening. Out of curiosity (and not at all meaning to be nasty), what proportion have you listened to at least once? If your collection started out as CDs which you ripped, there have to be some in there you ripped but will never again listen to (e.g. Boris Godunov in my case).

Only 177 days of music, so I've got a ways to go before I hit a year.  To your "have you listened to it" question, of the 61,000 music files, about 10,000 are from my wife's CD collection (she was a musician and music teacher long ago and far away and built up a medium-sized CD collection).  I haven't listened to most of her stuff even once, but she listened to all of it at some point. 

Of the 51,000 that are mine, I've definitely listened to everything at least once at some point.  Most of my collection is CD rips, and there are definitely a handful that I haven't listened to since I ripped them, but everything has gotten at least one listen either pre or post rip.  Most of the collection got my standard 1-2-3 listening method.  I always try to listen 1 album, in at least 2 different contexts (speakers, headphones, or car), across 3 full listens.  If I still don't like it after that, I feel like I've given it a chance.

There are a handful of albums I keep around specifically because they are bad, so I can put them on to demonstrate certain kinds of peculiar badness.  I may have only ever listened to those all the way through once, but choice tracks do get played periodically.

Right now it is like 8+ Terabytes, I have 4 New 10 Terabyte Drives On The Way (Should Be Here Today).

Most of my collection Is Old Radio Shows, Movies, Music, Pictures, TV Shows Etc..

I Also Have All The Video From CBS, ABC, And NBC, And Other Videos On The Shooting Of John F. Kennedy, And Other Video Like That About Other Subjects.

With The New Drives I Plan On Finish Ripping All My DVD's, And Add More.

I am copying the 8tb to my new drives, my backup program SyncBackPro stated 6+ days when I started.

It is hooked up to a USB port, so it's a bit slow.

I am thinking about hooking it up to my router (Linksys WRT 1900 ACS)

Is it a USB 3.0 port?  It would make a difference.

Yes, I know

it is hooked up to the SS usb port (SuperSpeed USB (SS)) but it is not transferring fast at all.

I am not in love with this PC, I can tell you that...

Exclude drives from antivirus or uninstall first. My backup doubles in speed when I do so.

I figured it out, The 8TB drive enclosure is on USB2, it was made before usb3 came out.

I just hooked it to my router, using a eSATA cable, and is on raid 0, so I have 40tb to fill up.

I am going to build another drive enclosure in a few months just like this one and use that as a backup.

I would advise you to think very carefully before using a router as a RAID controller.  Hell, RAID in even good consumer grade enclosures doesn't have a very good reputation.  I would use them in individual enclosures, or as JBOD in a simple multi-bay enclosure.  RAID is a fantastic idea, but the devil is in the details.  I've read about so many failures.  Routers do not make good disk controllers.

At a minimum plan to have good backups that you keep up with.

Good luck.

Brian.

It worked for a few mins, but the Router and the raid drive did not get along with each other.

Not Sure why....
