    DropBox

    Post by doomjedi on Sun Jun 16, 2013 2:08 am

    I guess you can't trust even DropBox.

    About 40%-50% (and in some folders - up to 70-80%) of TR Dropbox files where lost - for unknown reason.
    I work directly from DropBox - so I don't have any backups for that art.

    Most of the sprite files can be saved/extracted back from VSWAPs and VGAGraphs (and most of those can be extracted from source backups) - so I don't see it putting our current in-dev projects in immidiate danger - as I prepared VSWAP for each....but so much of my non-VSWAP art was lost - like "classic" alternative versions for Batman Bosses - and other art I meant to probably share with Wolf3D community at some times. Not all frames lost, but too many frames to recover.
    No folder got safe from this...
    Sad day to me... Sad

    I'll do everything I can to try to recover the art.

    What's TR again? Sorry for the loss...

    It's sad then. Backup to online? BACKUP GONE!

    TR is "Team RayCast" Smile

    I don't backup to Dropbox - I work directly from it. Backup - is ability of DropBox to recover older file versions from changed or DELETED files - for last 30 days. I guess file deletion happened more than 30 days ago - and went unnoticed...so Dropbox itself can't recover the files in this point.

    I'll try to recover the files. Maybe some unlinked older Dropbox folders are on my dad's comp or my work comp.
    Right now I'm running file recovery program on my home comp to recover deleted files and maybe older unlinked DropBox version that existed on my comp before I deleted it. "Zero Assumption Recovery" software.


    Also I need to release more artpacks - sort of backup too Smile

    Good news - I replaced my harddrive a few months ago as my old one got too corrupt and was "losing" my files and folders.
    Now I connected the "old" drive in addition to my new one - all files are there intact >0< . Moreso - that harddrive has 2 "snapshots" of my DropBox folders, from 2 different times.

    Grats. Hopefully my new SSD will be more reliable than an average HD.

    This is why I like mediafire. Mediafire gives me 55 GB of space. I like it. It will take a long time to use up 55 GB of space for Wolfenstein Mods. It is free.
