Does this mean the Vault is 100% full?? Or  did I exceed my number of uploads in 1 day? Does  ChickenNuggetz92   have informations? I hope this problem can be fixed. I'll try again tomorrow.

 

 

I just tried renaming a file and having the same problem. Paging @ChickenNuggetz92

If the Vault is full, one could erase some double content. In 1990/1991 there should be some files that are no longer need thanks to Dutch uploads... just saying.

A-ha! So we can be extremely confident that whether 8426 part 1 and 2, or 8426 and A, that the episode numbering needs to be considered this way. 

Yes, exactly. I wonder now if celebrating #9000 episode will mean #9001 or #9002 in other countries. But since we had the number on the original script with LSV as a writer, and it was confirmed by Casey Kasprzyk, there's no doubt about episode numbers form now on. Still, though I can understand why 8318A could be skipped in the international broadcast, but why Christmas episode was marked as 8426A, it would continue to baffle me

So the Vault is full, that's what I suspected. I suggest we don't delete anything for now. Especially not the  photo archive, which only takes a few Mo. Even if we delete some episodes the problem will resurface as soon as we post new stuff.

Let's wait until ChickenNuggetz92 sees these messages and see what she says..

 

 BoldKara   I will post episode 7976 and 7979-7997 and 8330-8389 as soon we have enough storage again.

I have seen episodes form 2012 on till 2021 on torrent sites, so may be if we have to decide we can delete the years after 2012.

I have thoese on storage so it will be no problem to upload them again when we have space.

But let's wait

This is old, but hilarious.... the first 23 years of B&B in 6 minutes.

 

 


Which is why the (understandable) groaning about the Liam merry-go-round amuses me. It is nothing new for B&B. It just used to be Ridge going back and forth and back and forth and grown women making stupid choice all the time and the incest, oh the incest.

I think the main difference is that back then the show actually had more than one story going on simultaneously. Even Ridge's waffling between first Caroline and Brooke and then between Taylor and Brooke never dominated the show so completely as Liam's waffling does now.

Not in the late 80s/early 90s but look back to the late 1990s/early 2000s and the complaints about the never-ending T/B/R triangle were similar to now.

Not that I don't understand and agree with the complaint - I also find the writing for the current triangle less compelling (I think Hope in particular is underwritten as an individual and both Steffy and Hope have not been given enough "alternative" pairings to distract us in between revivals of the triangle) - but I just do remember that this is a recurring problem for the show.

True, it did grow worse over time. Personally I felt though that when it tipped over into unbearable and finally made me quit watching, was when the triangle was Ridge/Brooke/Nick. And then Taylor came back from the dead and for a while we had a quad of Ridge/Taylor/Nick/Brooke. That was painful. By then of course the overall writing had also taken a plunge into the abyss and that was enough for me to give up on the show.

It was a bit sad though, because to this day I feel that B&B during it's heyday was a top class soap opera.

Hi all!

 

It's been a busy few days but allow me to investigate - I'll keep everyone posted.

 

Update 1: Everyone is correct in suspecting the Vault is now out of space. Thankfully it's not the situation like last time where the Vault space being reduced because Microsoft flagging the account. I've done a quick analysis of the folders taking up the most space, and the three biggest culprits are as follows:

 

B&B 1994 - 250 GB

B&B 2019 - 180 GB

Y&R 1999 - 690 GB

 

I suspect that it's because the file sizes are huge for each episode. That being said, I recommend temporarily removing B&B 2019 so people can continue to upload. In the meantime, I will take episodes with unnecessarily large files and reconvert them to H.265, which should save a considerable amount of space without sacrificing quality. This process will probably go over the course of a few weeks. Worst case scenario is I will spin off Y&R and B&B into their own vaults, which seem like an inevitability down the road. 

 

Thanks!

Taylor coming back from the dead a gazillion times kind of lost my interest in the character and while I thought Nick was a solid rival for Ridge - who did need a solid rival to be more tolerable and they never wrote Thorne well enough to be it - the Nick/Brooke story lost me when Bridget started being part of it and it became all too incestuous for me - again.

But one thing I will say for the Taylor/Brooke/Nick/Ridge quad is that it still led me to one of my favorite moments which is Taylor finding out the baby she carried had been conceived with Brooke's egg. 
Don't get me wrong: the story was insanely stupid and the acting iffy but it still is one of my favorite B&B camp moments of all times.
