The mantra is: if it doesn't exist in two places, it doesn't exist.

A professional:
Does not carry the original and the backup together when traveling.
Does not use drives that are questionable; if something bad has happened to a drive to make you suspect it, you should REPLACE that drive.

Actually the mantra is the data isn't considered safe unless it's backed up in three separate places with one of which preferably kept offsite. Unfortunately my bank doesn't have any safe deposit boxes left that are large enough to put a couple of hard drives in.

The thing, after recording in another city, I don't have a backup. Yes I'll do back up next time.

But now, I can't do the verification as the dropped disk is the original copy I have. I can successfully copy them out , but do I have to listen thru all 80 tracks?

How about if someone's using SSD, if an SSD dropped , expensive to replace ...

Yup. Like, if you got in a minor fender bender, you'd get out of the car and inspect for/the damage.

Is this the same guy who thought moving files into and out of the recycle bin would degrade the integrity of the files?

I heard from other people from other forums that, as long as we can copy the files out without seeing any errors, then there'll be no errors meaning I don't have to manually listen and check.

But it seems from what you said, even though the copy finishes without any error, they can not be trusted.

Which one is right?

All that copying a file without errors means is there were no bit errors in reading the file from the drive. It doesn't mean the audio isn't corrupted in some way. You really don't have any concept on how things work in the digital world do you? A bit error will definitely mess with your file but an error in what those bits represent won't give a bit error.

I hope I don't ever have you work for me or do work for me.

Default Re: If I use a crap HD to copy audio files, would it cause any problems?

Come on maaaaan

You are asking the same question in 100 different ways

Whats the matter with you!?? How is anyone gonna be able to say what your misuse of your drives is gonna work out ??

You are asking for us to say what you want to be the truth and it won't happen. I am stunned that anyone here are still trying and I emphasise on the word "trying" to set the record straight but as your other thread which is now merged to this new one kept going with suggestions you just keep mangling and mangling the subject.

What is it youu want anyone here to do for you? Do you not understand what we wrote in the 50+ posts regarding this!?

NO ONE can answer what happened when you carelessly let your drive drop to the concrete airport floor. Period! Stop rehashing the same question in different ways. To get to some answer you wanna hear.
