    Just thougt I'd ask how much storage you guys have. Not really for business purposes, but home use. So far in my pc I've got three 1 tb drives (samsung f1, 2 f3) and one 2tb, a samsung f4. I've got around 2700gb free, or around 700gb spare on each drive.

    In my pc I have 2 x 2Tb and 3 x 500Gb and a 120Gb SSD. Then 2 x NAS each containing 2 x 1Tb.

    Total = 9.62Tb

    Let's see....

    8 x 2TB drives (2 Hitachi Saturns & 6 Samsung F4s)
    2 x 1.5TB (Samsung F3)
    5 x 1TB (Samsung F3)
    1 x 60GB SSD (OCZ Vertex 1 - boot drive)

    So excluding the SSD, the answer to your question is 24TB (unformatted)

    What do you guys put on your hdd's lol. For me I've got a load of dvd iso's that I've decided to hang on to, a load of mkv files, and photos. I've got the odd bluray iso rip that are around 50gb each, but other than that not much else. Can't see what you'd need 24gb for, unless you are doing video, rendering etc.

    Just 500gb for me. Bought my hard drive before the 1TB drives came down dramatically in price. Annoying really, I am going to get a larger HDD but an SSD is first on the list!

    Main desktop has 2x2TB and a 60GB SSD
    Main laptop has a 60GB SSD and a 500GB slim external that tends to accompany it
    External drives for backup: 2TB, 1TB, 750GB

    Do these count?
    Sky Box - 1TB
    PS3 - 320GB
    Phone - 32GB
    HDDs sat in a box waiting to be sold or otherwise used: 40GB 2.5" (ex PS3), 320GB 2.5", 160GB 3.5", 60GB 2.5" sat in a HTPC that's disused.

    All of the above come to around 10TB, which is an awful lot more that I thought, nowhere near that in terms of actual data.


    Aww, come on... "my" verticals at work tally to around 3PB :D

    In my main rig (shown in signature), I've got just under 4TB in total. A three 1TB drives and two smaller drives.

    I'll need to upgrade the smaller drives sometime this year, it's almost all full with all my programming projects and games. A combined total of 790MB left to fill.

    2x1TB F3's. 64GB C300, 750GB external, everything almost full, wish the drives were 2TB, but oh well. And to someone who asked what people are doing with 20TB of storage. If you have a collection of TV shows, movies and anime in 1080p you suddenly need all the storage you can find. Also for more professional use, video and photo editing, any kind of raw uncompressed high quality files will take ridiculous amounts of space. Many games can also take a chunk. If you have a habit of buying games during steam sales and like to have everything on your HDD then it adds up real fast. I think the install for Shogun 2 was 22GB. Sure, not every game takes this much space, but a Steam folder can be more than 1TB easily as long as you have everything installed.

    The 2Tb is spread over three drives so if I wanted to use all of it at once I'd need a caddy for the final 500Gb.

    That's why I just gave away the smallest working IDE drive (40Gig), I want as few unsellable "orphans" as possible. If I counted a console's 250Gb, all the USB drives, the 80Gig IDE I took from a rellie's machine, that would be another 400, but only the IDE drive is totally unused all the time.
