RE: List of all Pools - Overview
@Gibsalot Hi there, saw your comment and noticed that it was 3 months ago. Am wondering if that has changed. I have an 8TB hard drive, any recommendations? I am also doing my research but thought I would consult you since you offered informative advice! :) Thanks in advance!
RE: Computer restarted while plotting 8TB hard drive
@luxe There is an xplotter file in my Burst folder but I do not ntfs:
Condition one, using a single desktop.
- Would the rate of mining be affected if I split my drive into two partitions? If yes, how would it be affected?
Condition two, using two separate desktops with the same specs:
- Desktop 1: two hard drives 4TB each (8TB total), plot them both and started mining
Desktop 2: one hard drive 8TB, plot it and started mining.
Would there be a different rate of mining?
What I know:
Mining relies on the write speed of the hard drive and to a certain extent your cpu when it reads the plots.
Thanks again for being patient guys!
Computer restarted while plotting 8TB hard drive
I am new to the burst coin community, but have been lurking on bitcoin, ethereum and cryptocurrency telegram groups in Malaysia since late 2015. There has zero chatter in those chats about burstcoin so I'm looking around to meet more people :) I want to get into burstcoin because I am interested in cryptocurrency and my little brother is rarely psyched over things and he was really keen in getting into burstcoin too so I want him to have a burst partner to learn and explore with. We ordered an 8TB hard drive to give it a try and we fixed up my old gaming rig and did some upgrades/updates (for gaming and burst mining purposes), so here we are.
tl;dr Bolded words are the main points on what I have done and the status of my progress in solving the problem I have
As mentioned in the title, my computer restarted while plotting my external hard drive (yesterday). It was at about 57% done when I checked last morning before I left for work. When I got back home in the evening I discovered the Windows Welcome screen on my screen so it was an "OH-FUCK." moment for me (I should have turn off my windows updates while plotting).
What I did so far:
So I googled for solutions to the problem.
I downloaded PlotsChecker and ran it to do a check and it came out with an okay.

Then I went ahead and open my Windows batch file in my "Burst" folder to try and run it as admin, but it told me I couldn't find H:\plots, but thing is I have my plots in my G file. So I went ahead and searched online and followed the instructions to change my drive from G drive to H drive. So now... My when I run my bat file now it shows that I have "not enough free space, reduce nonces"
So I'm seeking help from you guys because
- If I can avoid reformatting and replotting my hard drive from scratch that would be nice because it takes about 10 days to plot an 8TB hard drive with 3 cores of my cpu
- It's a way for me to learn more about computer processes and how to work around problems like these (hopefully someone else finds this thread helpful?)
Thought I'll ask for help here and give it a few days before I turn off window updates to reformat and replot my drive. Lol...
Thanks in advance for the help guys and I hope your week has been charming!
