Re: Thoughts on data organization


<warning - fairly long - may be overkill>

I have finally come up with a solution that I am happy with for keeping 
my data organized. I'll give you the full scope of what I'm doing for 
context. This is a home use system, probably overkill for most but I 
think I built it fairly intelligently and thriftily. I'm a big believer 
in making sure you don't ever lose the data if you are going to bother 
organizing it.

First thing I did was get rid of all my "off-line" backup media like 
CD-Rs, DVD-Rs, etc. I still use them for semi annual HDD snap shots, 
but only for sections of my filesystems that I know change a lot or 
stuff that can be relatively self contained (MP3, DVD collections).

The only time I should ever have to access these CDs/DVDs is in a 
"disaster recovery" mode. No more piles of optical media cluttering my 
desk. Like the "paperless" office, this isn't always reality but there 
is a lot less clutter than there used to be.

I put everything online - at least everything that I care about and 
would not want to loose. I have a NFS server (Linux of course, 
currently RH9) that has /home mounted on a large dedicated spindle. In 
addition to that there is a second spindle of the same size in a 
removable drive tray that rsync's the content of the first spindle 
every night. I also intend to run AIDE (free equivalent to Tripwire) 
against the first volume to detect "bit rot".  This is not a hot swap 
config - for home use that would be unnecessary.

There is a third hard disk of the same size in another removable tray

Re: Thoughts on data organization


It just occurred to me that there are some emails that I DO care about. 
The mailing lists that I maintain. (well, duh!). I also didn't mean to 
minimize the idea of saving email (if you read my response that way, 
sorry, wasn't my intent).

For the "public" lists I let the archive feature of mailman keep copies 
of everything. In some respects this sucks, as it is not searchable 
short of downloading the whole archive and grep'ping what you want.

What I've done for one mailing list is have each email sent into a 
MySQL table via procmail, perl, monarc - this makes it searchable. I 
haven't gotten around to writing the front end for it in PHP though. I 
should do something about that...the mailing list has been active for 5 
years now...

Anyway, just an added point I thought I'd mention. To archive all your 
mail set up procmail and/or mailman to take a copy on arrival. That way 
you can delete stuff in your inbox/folders in your mail client but 
still have an archived copy somewhere.

Again, HTH.
