Need help with cold storage backup (update) strategy

2020.08.31 19:20 super_asshat Need help with cold storage backup (update) strategy

Hey fellow addicts,
I'm looking for guidance on how to best organize cold-storage backups and updating them later on. I apologize for the wall of text.
What I've done so far:
What I need help with:
While technically I am good for the moment, I'd like to have a battle plan for updating the content when the time comes. I was hoping that my problem is generic enough that there's apps to help with, alternatively perhaps someone has an idea for a workflow to deal with it.
I'll be able to identify folders that have changed since this backup run by their dotfiles. While my script currently ignores subfolders for generating lists, it still writes dotfiles to all subfolders included in the backups (so at least in it's current form it's only useful for the initial backup run, which is now complete)
All but the last drive of each set (Movies / TV) are at 99% fill, so, for TV, updating likely means removing content from one drive and re-adding it onto another.
If there are no (good) suggestions, my fallback is to write a script that finds all (sub)folders that do not have a dotfile and produce a fresh list for the last hard drive (or eventually a new one) based on that.
This might be good enough for TV because
The downside is that content will then be split up on the backup drives (seasons for shows on different drives).
Even if you don't have any suggestions, I'd like to thank you taking the time to make it this far in the post :)

Questions Answers
I just wanted to say that Paranormal Activity scared the living shit out of me. I hate the scene where the girl is under the blankets & the demon moves the blankets and grabs her leg. Blankets are supposed to be the fucking safe zone, man! It's a combination of fearing the unknown, the invisible, and the sense of vulnerability you have when you're asleep.
Anyways, thanks for doing an AMA, we all really appreciate it. How did you make the demon of Paranormal Activity so terrifying? It's like you know all of my personal fears. Also, the idea that you're not safe in your own home...
Trust me, it totally worked. Thanks to your goddamn movie I would lay in bed and literally jump from every sound in my house. Absolutely scared the shit out of me. I'm pretty easily scared, especially for a 22-year-old dude, but congratulations on doing exactly what you set out to do. If I could ask one more question: I've heard that originally Paranormal Activity was meant to open-ended as to whether it was actually a demon or if the girl just went insane and killed her boyfriend, but was later changed to be the story of some people being haunted. Is there any truth to this, or was it definitely a demon from the time you first thought of it? The original ending was a bit more open for interpretation... but not really. if Katie was just crazy, it still doesn't explain how she got dragged out of bed by an invisible force.
Did you expect Paranormal Activity to explode and be as successful as it was? Not at all. as I was making it, I had to be hopeful that if the movie turned out great, maybe it'll get limited theatrical distribution, but the odds are definitely against you. but that hope kept me motivated.
How did it affect your relationship with your girlfriend? It didn't help the relationship - we are no longer together, although that wasn't the main reason.
Just wanted to say I promise I won't pirate Chernobyl Diaries (or any of your other work). You have my respect good sir. Appreciate it!
Do you consider yourself a morbid person? I think I'm generally a happy person, but I have morbid fascination with things.
How much did you pay in copyright fees to get Darth Maul in Insidious? He was simply happy to get some extra work.
When your movies are finished and you watch them at the premiere do they ever scare you? This also goes for other horror films, has being involved in the making of scary films ruined your enjoyment of them? My own movies never scare me, but it's a terrifying experience watching your movie with an audience wondering how they receive it.
I heard that Paranormal Activity was actually completely done long before it was released in theaters. Is this true? It was shot in 2006, edited into 2007. then slightly tweaked (mostly new ending) once DreamWorks came on board. released fall of 2009.
Also, how did it feel to basically come out of basically nowhere in the movie industry and make it pretty big? It was pretty nutty. I'm still not used to it. beyond my wildest dreams.
Which ending to Paranormal Activity do you prefer, the one where Katie disappears or the one where she slits her throat? I like the original "cops" ending, and the official ending.
Do you think a thrillehorror movie could work without the supernatural aspect? I get that the stuff we don't understands scares the shit out of us but could a scary movie be successful if there was no disease, zombie, ghost, or any other non-existent thing? Of course. Seven. Silence of Lambs.
Sometimes people are scarier than anything else.
Never saw Seven and I don't remember Silence of the Lambs really freaking me out like PA2 when I watched it by myself with the lights off (I only made it about 45min through before I turned them back on). So I guess what I was trying to get at was is it that hard to make a movie realistic and as scary as PA? Certainly not easy. making it found-footage with amazingly talented actors helps.
I heard that when the studios bought out the rights for Paranormal Activity 1, they asked to change and retake the ending. Why did you let them do this? Thanks for answering my earlier question! In test-screenings the original ending didn't play as strongly as the rest of the film so we experimented with new endings. in one of the most surreal episodes of my life, an ending was suggested by Spielberg which we shot, tested and it played great in front of an audience.
In writing Paranormal Activity, did you purposely try to add comic relief? Micah had a few humorous lines, and the entire theater was cracking up as soon as the psychic said he had couldn't be there. Was this intentional, or just a happy accident? Some of it was intentional, some accidental, and most of it thanks to Micah's improv.
I had no idea some of the movie was improv. Were a lot of the lines improvised? About 99% of it was improv.
If you had to fight a dinosaur to the death in a Dinosaur Death Match using only primitive weapons and not allowed to set traps, what's the biggest dinosaur you think you win against? You don't have to name a specific dinosaur, just give us a size reference. T-Rex.
Before it hatches.
Jesus Christ, Oren. You just beat one of my fucking T-Rexes. Oren, what the fuck man? Oren... Look, if it's in an egg then... GODDAMMIT, OREN!!! Ok, maybe then just a second after it hatches. it'll be officially a T-Rex then.
Seeing as Olivia Dudley is part of the Chernobyl cast, are you a fan of 5secondfilms? I wasn't familiar with 5 sec films before casting her. but we're all fans of her!
Was there any true video takes from Chernobyl used in your movie? Yes, we used some stock footage.
Hi! What's your favorite movie? Stand by Me.
Hey Oren. I can proudly say that Paranormal Activity has kept me awake far more than all the horror movies I've seen combined. Now here are my two questions: 1: How many Paranormal Activity films do you plan on making and 2: on October I will enroll into a film-making university. What are your suggestions for an aspiring filmaker? Thanks in advance. We're only planning to make PA4. it's one movie at a time - no plans beyond the current one.
Sorry, I never went to film school so I can't give you useful advise.
What was your "shitty-ass day job?" Video game programmer.
Oren, hello! It's Brad McHargue - I interviewed you via Skype a coupla months ago. Just wanted to say hello and welcome! Glad to see you on here. I'm lookin' forward to seeing CHERNOBYL DIARIES! As for a question, do you feel that found footage is limited in how it can be executed, or do you think that there a limitless ways to play with the conceit? Found footage those present limitations and challenges, but I think we will see lots of smart filmmakers using it in ways we haven't thought of yet.
Out of all your works, which are you most happy with? PA1.
What's your favorite scary movie? Movies don't usually scare me but the one that did was Paranormal Activity. I could relate to the realness of the characters and the suspense built up in a subtle but terrifying way. "favorite" is not the right word, but no movie scared me like THE EXORCIST. partly because I was only 10 or 11 when I saw it.
Next would be Blair Witch.
Loved PA1 even though I'm typically not too into the horror genre. During the making of this movie what made you decide to not go the route of gore/showing the demon? For my taste, showing too much can often be less scary than not seeing the "monster". your own imagination can be way more effective.
Blair Witch Project was a great example of that. when I watched it I was terrified BECAUSE we never saw the witch.
Also, if your enemy is invisible it can sometimes be much scarier.
Why can't you get Chernobyl Diaries in the Theatres here in New Zealand. Some direction towards Hoyts Distribution or Village Roadshow would be appreciated. The main reason I say this is that some of these movies get released in the US 2 or 3 months before they come out here. This usually forces people into piracy as HD rips become available before any theatre release. Can you do anything about this? I don't really handle international distribution, but I will ask around.
Is there going to be a Paranormal Activity 4? Yes. Oct 19th.
Thanks for doing this! Quick question. Japan made a version of Paranormal Activity called "Paranormal Activity 2: Tokyo Night". Were you involved in anyway with the production? I was not. haven't even seen it yet.
Sorry if this question has been asked before, but I'm curious about the scenes in the Paranormal Activity movies that are fast-forwarded. For example, in PA1 there was one night where Katie got out of bed and stood there staring at Micah for 3+ hours. How long did those scenes actually take? Much less... only a few minutes. although Katie was willing to stand there all night if needed.
I see you and your girlfriend broke up after PA. Are you interested in short, fat chicks with kids? Half trolling. Sounds tempting, but I already have a girlfriend.
Was the book michah was reading about demons real in pa1? I've been curious to read it. Also, are there any alternate endings for pa3? I do promotions for paramount and can't wait for pa4! Thanks. Yes, it's a real book. don't remember the exact name.
We shot several different endings for PA3 (and PA2... and PA1).
Is the Chernobyl diaries a form of predictive programming for a nuclear attack upon the US? Are you trying to desensitize us? Hmm.... nope.
Although, that's probably what I would say to deny it if it were true.
If you were to direct a movie with M. Night Shyamalan, who would come up with the more interesting twist? I think he's the master of twists!
Hello Mr. Peli, I was a huge fan of The River and was sad to see it cancelled. Do you have any plans to return to television? And do you believe that The River would have been more successful had you gone to a more premium cable channel such as HBO? No specific plans at the moment.
One can only speculate, but if I return to TV I might want to try cable.
Did the actors know what was going on for the most part in Paranormal Activity, or did you try and actually scare the actors? Sometimes they did (in the more complex scenes), and other times I would just tell them "good night" and do things to scare and surprise them.
What is Patrick Wilson like in real life? Patrick Wilson is super nice, very genuine person.
What movie have you enjoyed the most making? PA1.
Is Tom Riddle's diary one of the Chernobyl Diaries? :P. Maybe that'll be the sequel.
Hi there. Since "The River" was just cancelled, could you please tell me where the story was going and/or what was supposed to happen throughout the rest of the show's seasons? I'm still holding on to the secrets of The River... who knows... maybe one day it'll be resurrected?
What do you think accounts for the huge success of found footage films recently? I think that when done right, found-footage has a sense of realism and intimacy about them that makes the audience connect to the characters and plot on a deeper level. most of us have gotten used to seeing YouTube videos and reality shows and they feel more real than "traditional" scripted movies.
Which one of the PA movies do you personally think is the scariest? It's hard for me to objective. people tell me it's either 1 or 3.
I just want to say I loved Insidious and PA3 and I look forward to Chernobyl Diaries. Also, considering the video game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Is based in the vicinity of Chernobyl and it is a horror game (one of my favorites) did you use any inspiration from the series? I never played STALKER, but did read about it once I started researching Chernobyl.
Ma nishma? Tov Toda.
Did you think it was going to be a huge success when you first filmed paranormal activities? Also, how spooky was the scene and the area during filming? Answered above re thinking it would be a success...
It wasn't spooky at all actually. we were having fun making a movie!
Nigga those ghosts was scary! Werd up.
Jesus man; I love all your work, but Insidious was probably the most intense movie I have ever seen. No cheap horror or obvious scares... just pure unadulterated intensity. Great call with Patrick Wilson by the way; it was kind of like Hard Candy in reverse for that role. Thanks, although the credit for Insidious should really go to James Wan and Leigh Whannel!
My husband and I love The River! I'm looking forward to more episodes! Also you made my husband shriek while watching Insidious in the movie theater. My 16 year-old cousin asked him if he was too scared and wanted to leave. Glad to hear :)
Too bad you're not Oren Moverman from RAMPART! I heard he was exquisite. My apologies for not being him.
I haven't seen Rampart yet but loved The Messenger.
