Default Internet Archive...how archival?



Advertise Here

Yesterday I noticed the last 2 - 3 weeks of uploads I made to the Internet Archive was gone. Have never had any problem with the Archive before. I'm estimating the uploads totaled 3 - 4 GB. Last night I tried to upload 1.6GB and it kept failing.

Here are some of the lost uploads...

Collection of 1913 photogravures of American Indians
Collection of Collotypes of Japan from 1890's
Artists book collection
Archival historical photos, Weegee, current news photos, etc.
Collection of 1950s ballerina photos and book.

I can't even remember everything I uploaded. I never thought I needed to keep a log of what I uploaded to the Archive for my archive.

Give them a call and ask them what's up.

I was having problems reaching some sites last night too so there may have been an intermittent network outtage that was causing your uploads to fail.

Are you uploading them to Archive.org or another archive?

Perhaps they had a hard drive failure and had to revert back to an earlier backup.

Those are interesting collections. I would not mind viewing them myself.

Yes,

https://archive.org/

Do they have different internet archives for files? Good to be diverse with back ups.

I also use

http://archive.is/

for web pages.

Well, we will see what haps. I hope it is restored. Weeks of scanning and time. All hi-res too, not garbage.

If I had all the things I found and lost over the years I would need a couple of terabytes of storage. Maybe a NAS - attached storage...

Oh, wait, I do have one. Now I need a time machine.

Copy everything interesting. You may never see it again. It is better to delete than to never have.

Terabytes of storage are cheaper than dirt. Terabyte is the new gigabyte.

I would never rely on some "cloud" service to store or safeguard my stuff.
