So I have a file server of sorts.. atm it's over 50TB capacity, with roughly half of that being unique data, the other half is simply back-up. I've been downsizing a few of my rigs lately, as well as changing OS (from windows to linux). My file server, well.. have only turned it on about 4-5 times between sept.'19 and now. I can't even remember most of the crap it stores. I do know there is a lot of drivers, programs etc for older hardware, older windows os' etc etc. Kinda hard to let go "what if I need it someday" or "archival for ppl making retro boxes". I'd like to downsize. Some of these files are still floating about on the 'net, but sometimes I think to myself, what about when some P4 era hardware becomes really ancient, like, as ancient as a 486 machine is.. ppl will need drivers, apps etc... thoughts? keep? or delete and (semi) clean start?
