I have about 30TB (largely very redundant, though, and I'm guessing <10TB total of content) of old drives, some intact, some recovered and just a mess of files, and cumulatively this mess contains my work, school work, hobbies, multiple music libraries, photography, videos, etc. from the past 20 years. It's all a mess, I've been terribly disorganized and now there's backup after recursive backup so huge amounts of redundancy and a lot of files in older formats (Claris Works, etc.) that I will have to save in another format on an old iMac I bought that runs classic. Multiple users, too. How the heck do I get started? Eventually I want to reduce this backup into files I find interesting or worthwhile, which will be a very tiny percentage of them. I bought a 16TB RAID array to start with. I was thinking of working drive-by-drive then: Documents Movies Photos Then by year maybe? I am so overwhelmed.... and disorganized.... any organized people out there? I wish I didn't have to organize each drive individually but I think cumulatively it's too much. Any way to track progress effectively? I guess I could label everything after I've archived it.
