The ssds of desuarchive/rbt.asia
front server 1TB with database became read only. since at least the server is still on somehow we are making a full database backup at 5MB/s and a full backup at 2MB/s. Backup completion may be around 4 days at current estimates.
Full images and thumbs seem to be alright at cursory look. However, given that the front server is in an unreliable state, we will have to let the backups finish (which may take a while) before we can do a fsck check or request new servers from our provider. We will demand new ssds from our provider.
The previous available monthly backup database is from August 10th, 2018. If the database we have currently on the ssds are fukt then we are going to have to restore from that time period.
What we can do for the text period from August 10 until now is to restore the text and thumbs from archived.moe as well as it is the archive of last resort. but it will take a while to bring everything back together if so, so that is not the optimal thing to do.
Since it can be recovered from archived.moe at least the text and thumbs for the past months is not lost, so no worries about that.
We will also be scraping the boards using the search server in the meantime without public access. This is our tenacity.
