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!

You’re amazing! Thank you for your work.

Update 2: I found the source of the problem! The reason some file sizes are so huge is because of a OneDrive feature called Versioning. Its core function is to keep a version of a file between changes. This is usually triggered if somebody changes the name of the file on OneDrive. What this means is if a file gets renamed, the file size will end up doubling because OneDrive keeps a previous version, or if it gets re-named twice, then the file size will triple. Unfortunately I've tried to turn off this feature but it doesn't allow me to, at least for this OneDrive account.

 

There isn't a quick and easy way within OneDrive to automatically delete previous versions of a file. That being said, I keep an automatic sync of the Vault on an external hard drive which saves only the newest versions. What I'm currently doing is moving the folders away from the sync folder, deleting the files on OneDrive, and re-syncing them.

 

What this means on your end is that you will notice once in a while some folders for certain years going missing. This is normal while I re-migrate the files onto the drive without the unnecessary space. I'm hoping to do this within a week.

 

By the end of this, we should recover about 1.42TB of storage - plenty of wiggle room until I have to worry about another solution. Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime!

Vault Update 3:

 

Good news! I was able to re-sync the 1990s folders for both Y&R and B&B, and 2000s/2010s Y&R and doing that managed to free up 1.5TB without losing any files. You may now continue to upload as usual. Please bear in mind if you choose to re-name the files, download them, rename on your computer, and re-upload them to avoid OneDrive Versioning. This will save up tremendous amounts of space.

 

Down the road, if we do max out at 5TB, I'm looking into spinning off Y&R into its own OneDrive account. But that's a future me problem.

i propose instead of renaming videos we do a file in each year with a list of the name of the video and what episode/date it is supposed to be. That way we will safe space from now on.

Thank you 1994 uploader  for the new uploads

Just yesterday KKL posed with Julian and Jeremy - all grown up - on Instagram


I never check actors' social media because I am often disappointed with this or that comment but I went to KKL's and
1) I had no idea she was a grandmother. It makes sense based on her age but it still feels like WOW has time passed

2) I like that she still seems to be in touch with Ashley Jones a lot. And seeing Jennifer Gareis in so many pictures seem to confirm what we were saying a few days back that Gareis seems to be very popular with everyone on-set and that's probably why they had her on contract even though there was no real story reason to.

Thank you  ChickenNuggetz92   for your updates.  

 

I added new episodes between 2000 and 2008... I'll make the list here.

 

- The 19 episodes in December 2018. Someone asked September-December because these episodes aren't on Youtube. I don't intend to do before September. Episodes until #7925 are on Youtube.

 

- Episodes #5353 and #5354 in 2008. They are missing on Youtube. I removed these 2 episodes from the “episodes missing list 2005-2009''. 5350-5352 and 5355-5358 are still missing.

 

- Episode #4850 in 2006 (Darla's death). Also removed this episode from the list.

 

- 4 episodes in 2005. Episodes #4501, #4502 (in 2 parts), #4504 and #4505. (4503 and 4506-4510 were already in the Vault)

 

- August 14th 2003 Part 1 (#4110) was missing in 2003. Part 2 was already in the Vault and I added part 1.

 

- 17 new episodes in 2004 : #4280 to #4296, episodes from April and May 2004. (4276-4279 were already in the Vault and these 17 episodes are from the same channel.)

EDIT: Now I notice #4292 was already there... Delete one of the 2 versions if you want.

Also added #4387 (September 17, 2004) but I'm not 100% sure about the number for this one. Someone verifies it please.

 

- 4 episodes in March 2001 : #3513, #3514, #3516 and #3517

 

- 5 episodes in May 2000: #3303, #3304, #3307, #3308, #3309 and 2 episodes in December 2000 #3448 (first 5 minutes are missing) and #3449.

EDIT : I just realized 3303 isn't in English. Don't know which language it is, sorry.

 

- If anyone is interested, I've episodes that are already in the Vault but in 2 parts.... I've them in 1 part and slightly better quality:

- #3336, #3337, #3338, #3339 and #3345 (5 episodes) in July 2000

- #4113 until #4122 (10 episodes) between August 19 and September 2, 2003

(Maybe   BoldRestless  or someone else can delete these 15 episodes and I'll add mine in 1 part)

 

I think that's all I have. If I find other new episodes I'll add them. I hope someone will continue to upload in 1991 after #1090... thanks!

Thank you so much! 3303 and 3304 are in Finnish and it is actually from my originals that I shared here earlier past year as are the others from May. I actually thought I already shared them in the vault but thanks anyway
