Hoo TV Archive migration to pCloud for football is complete (links)

Moving terabytes of files around on the Internet is not easy, but all 225 football videos that were stored in the Google Drive version of the archive have now been migrated to the new pCloud version of the archive. Many more football videos have also been added for a current total of 408.

The increase is largely a result of two things:

- an increase in the available cloud storage space for the archive from purchasing 6 TB of lifetime space from pCloud, compared to the roughly 4.5 TB of Google Drive space available, allowing the storage of many more game videos for which there was formerly no room

- a donation of 121 VHS tapes by SixWahoos from which 138 football-related videos alone have been gleaned and digitized

As always, you can browse the archives by going to "Hoo TV Archive of Past Games" shared Google document (linked below) and then going to the different cloud storage links contained therein.

However, the sport-specific spreadsheet for Hoo TV Football Game Videos (as pictured below and linked in the document) has also now been updated to include links to the archived videos/files for each game/event. The spreadsheet also contains links up at the top to the different Hoo TV cloud storage archives, if you'd rather just browse. The spreadsheet and it's links are intended for quick browsing/access and to provide content notes. Entries have been made for any and everything available for each game, e.g., DVD ISO images, versions synced to Virginia Sports Radio Network, etc. For example, check out the entries for our 2019 win over VPI.

Note, however, that there are still a few oddball files not linked that you can discover by navigating/browsing the archive instead.

Please consider donating videos of games for which there are none or that may be of higher quality. I can work with just about any format. The resulting video(s) will be named/listed in the Hoo TV archive as from you, using a pseudonym, like your username, or "Anonymous" or whatever you prefer, e.g.,

Virginia Football 1998-09-19 - Clemson (ABC 720x480) (from SixWahoos).mp4

Note that no more updates are being made to the Google Drive archive and haven't been since about 11/1/2019. It's two 2 TB allocations are currently being paid for month-to-month. Once all the files associated with a given allocation have been migrated to pCloud, payments will cease for that allocation. It remains to be seen what will happen to the files after that. Access to them may cease relatively soon or they may remain available indefinitely. I'll be concentrating on migrating men's basketball next.
