hard drive progress

Things are going well with my hard drive shuffling so far — the new drives are in my desktop box and tested, I’ve created and formatted the new arrays, and I’m now copying the data across. Over my 100Mbit network it’s probably going to take until Saturday morning for everything to finish copying, but that’s no big deal, since there’s no need to take the TV box offline while I copy the data from it. Thanks to rsync, I can do another quick copy run once this bulk copy is finished to pull across any files that have changed since I started the first copy.

Unless something goes horribly wrong, I should be all-but-done by Saturday afternoon.
