Paranoia (Or Space Whore)

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

I really wonder if they have a particular disease for someone who’s paranoid about their computer data and maintaining a lot of disk spaces, other than being anal-retentive, that is. If there’s one thing I do not want to lose is my computer data. I have stuff from at least 2000 that I cherish, so to lose them would be quite a devastating event for me. Because of my paranoia (and because I needed a larger external hard drive — apparently 250gb is not enough for me), I went and bought this awesome thing called Tiny today.

Now with Palindrome (250gb primary HD), DFMA (“Don’t Fail Me Arsehole” 500gb secondary HD), Stooges (500gb external HD), Tiny (500gb external HD), and optional Portie (160gb HD), I think I have plenty of backup sources and data storages. That should last me well for a couple of years! Slanty, my old 250gb external HD has been given to my dad. Yeah! I am one less a fat and heavy external HD. These “My Passport” external HD like Tiny are the best thing ever! Smaller than a regular external HD and bigger with more space capacity than a USB flash drive, I am in love with the “My Passport” format.

Now if I ever have to evacuate South Korea (which is another factor that makes me wanted to get these smaller external HDs), to which I hope it never happens but one can never be too safe, I am now prepared for whatever may come to me.

. . . Unless a missile drops on my apartment. ~_~;;

  1. Actually I’m not moving hosts.My host is.So we need to back up our files :S

  2. Oh I didn’t understand you :S I’m not really hood at english xD

  3. I think it’s normal to be a bit worried about backing up stuff.

    I understand your plight completely because technology can fail ya plenty. I also have a 160gb iOmega external hard-drive just in case my PC does a number on me. However, I have also found out that there are new external HD with 1TB capacities…bigger than your 160+ GB capacity external HDs available on the market. Now, that’s something to think about. But, the only warning I’ll give anyone is to never put all your eggs in one basket, especially if your a newb with backing up your files on external HDs.

  5. I must admit, I am very anal about my computer space. I’m constantly cleaning things up and moving them to my external HD. I’m always backing up things on my computer.

  6. I’ve lost a lot of computer data, photos, work and the like over the years. I don’t think I’ve learnt from it though =/ i don’t have any back up of my files.
