New HDD arrived today, all hooked up, but now deciding if I want to wait to seed all 14TB with random data before running cryptsetup and rsync data over.

Or just YOLO it and encrypt and copy.

@ecliptik As a privacy junky my self I would do random data on it but... Its a new toy and I would not be patient enough to wait so... YOLO IT ! 😁

@0PT41N I gave it maybe an hour and then encrypted and started the rsync.

It will be going for a while, almost 12 hours in and 3.1TB of 7.1TB copied.

@ecliptik Damn, a tech nerds worst enemy 😑 (I am also a tech nerd 😉)
