BoB's Server and our pictures.

Recommended Posts

wayjen

If BoB has a server or servers and they hold all our pictures on them can we delete these pictures off or computers?

 

I take it that if we delete these pictures off our computers and BoB servers crash we will lose those pictures.

 

The reason for my question is that some of us have small computers when it comes to harddrive space (gigs) and our computers will become sluggish with all the pictures we are filling our harddrives up with.

Oh no. Do NOT delete your pictures whatever you do. BoB only keep the pictures for a very limited period. Save them to a CD disc but do not delete them from your life!

Agreed - if you have issues with storage get your self an external USB harddrive - the smaller ones go for a few hundred bucks.

 

Alternatively you can save your pictures online (but then possibly for the world to see) - i.e. http://picasaweb.google.com/home or Welcome to Flickr - Photo Sharing.

 

At BoB we will delete images if they have not accessed in 60 days (meaning that no one looked at your auctions). In the next 4 weeks we will increase this limit to 180 days or longer. If one of our server crashes we have backups and redundancy and images will not be lost because of a crash (unless a nuclear bomb hits Gauteng)

That would be a case of "heaven preserve us!" :P

aah ha i just wondered if you were on MacMuffin so thanks for the feedback and you too miss lily. the thing was i by accident clicked on the "browse server " button when i was busy setting up an auction and saw a list of my pictures there. I also thought my DVD writer was broken and i found it to be working so i thought i might try copy all my pictures to disc just in case my pc crashes.

 

oh yes i do have a Picasa web album account so that might be another option too.

yes it will, but you have something like 7000 images uploaded on BoB - this will take a while and a rainy weekend ;)

Wayne gets around in his trolley, I tell you. His "other" forum doesn't always recognize him when the bag ladies are chasing himand the dogs are chasing the lot of them!

Thanks for the info, MacMuffin. NOW I understand why Wayne consorts with the bag ladies!! LOL

 

@MacMuffin - if Andries hasn't deleted all those "precious" threads about Wayne and his trolley - take a look and you'll be rolling in the aisles. :P
