head_victimA dry run rsync to a fresh location gives me a total size of 463GB, an accumulative rsync gives me 850GB. I'm using rsync -vtlrh source destination - any suggestions?08:31
head_victimOh and I've thrown a --delete in there as well to no avail.08:31
head_victimFor the record --ignore-errors did the trick.09:21
sagacihead_victim: how long did it take to sync09:24
head_victimIt took bugger all (came back to the pc within 30 mins) and the extra 400GB was gone09:25
head_victimThe 850GB collection built up over months.09:26
sagaciah ok09:27
head_victimI've noticed aarnet has slowed to about 2.2MB/s these days though.09:28
head_victimFirst few seconds ramp up over 4 but within 5 - 10 seconds its back to 2.2 - 2.409:28
sagaciyeah, i'm down to 1.509:34
head_victimI'd say the speed is there because I haven't noticed any drop off anywhere else, maybe it's being throttled somewhere I'd say.09:43
sagacibigpond, i'd say09:44
head_victimOr aarnet suddenly having a massive load of Telstra clients.09:48
sagaciyeah, maybe09:50
head_victimI wonder how back "a few bad sectors" is on a SMART test for a 2tb drive.11:17
gorillahead_victim: I'd be backing up the drive and replacing it. But that's more my level of paranoia.11:29
head_victimYeah, I'm working on backing it up now. 11:30
head_victimIt's showing a bad sector count of 79 on a 2tb drive11:31
head_victimIt's only been powered on 1.2 years 11:31
head_victimgorilla: would a fsck help at all?11:32
head_victimJust researching the topic on google and working out if it is worth using the drive at all11:32
sagacihead_victim, is it your ubuntu archive drive?11:54
head_victimsagaci: that's one of the things on it. No real problem with that though, I can get that again any time I need it.11:54
head_victimIt's also my primary network drive for documents, etc.11:54
sagaciI wouldn't share that kinda stuff on the same drive11:55
head_victimI do semi-regular backups so just doing a manual rsync of everything I can't replace elsewhere to put my mind at ease.11:55
head_victimIt's only shared across the lan. No security threat.11:55
head_victimOn a side note, I'm getting almost as much linked in spam on mailing lists as I'm getting other spam on my email account :/11:56
sagacilike I mean, I know for myself, I'd have separate drives for ubuntu backup/archive and a separate one for personal stuff11:59
head_victimI was meant to, but that got sidetracked learning how to correctly build the server to run it all.12:00
head_victimSo the personal data sits on raid 10 and the mirror on an external drive.12:00
sagaciah ok12:01
head_victimAnd then anything not easily replaceable rsynced on a weekly cron to another network drive.12:01
head_victimAnd then I also burn some DVDs for semi-static data like photos, etc.12:02
head_victimI think that's a decent enough backup plan for a home network, just don't want to ever have to test it.12:02
sagacii'm going to see if I can hack around on testdrive to include sync/launches of lubuntu daily isos12:03
head_victimI would but that's metered data :/12:03
head_victimUnless you can convince aarnet to mirror dailies as well ;)12:04
sagaciwell it's 700mb straight up but then it just sync the changes12:04
sagaciwhich is convenient12:04
head_victimAh zsync the changes?12:04
sagaciyeah, zsync12:06
sagaciotherwise falls back to curl/wget12:06
head_victimNice work. I'm concentrating on getting the basics right. My previous approach was leaving gaps in my knowledge so now I'm sticking strictly to a book to work through.12:09
head_victimTrying to plug the holes so I can do things right instead of just the quickest way I could find on google12:10
sagacihead_victim, is an email saying sunday week too confusing to send out now12:21
head_victimNah just give the time and date and a shortlist of topics to try and generate conversation on them12:22
