    HTPC 40+250+400+200+200+250 = 1340GB (with room for another 8)
    External drives 320+120+60 = 500GB
    Laptop 80
    Other PCs 40+40+120+80 = 280
    Flash ~10G total (Does this count?)

    Approx 2.2T most of it PATA

    But I'm about to add a 500G SATA drive to the HTPC as it looks like one of the 200G ones is dying.

    i went with the 4in3 because of the 120mm fan, firstly, its more concentrated on the outside, where the most air will get past the disk
    Secondly, you can fit faster/slower, louder/quieter fans with a 120mm

    Still 12-14 HDD's is plenty enough for me :p

    Um, beats me, lets see:

    Laptop 160GB
    Desktop 4*80Gb Raid 5(inc hotspare =160Gb)
    Music Server 60Gb
    Gutted Gaming rig (lost it's CPU!) 120Gb.
    External eSATA backup 320GB.

    I really must sort out a propper file server and stick it in the garage.

    How much Storage

    Main Rig
    150Gb RaptorX
    2 x 750Gb Seagate Baracuda's

    2nd PC
    300Gb 7200rpm WD Caviar SE

    Laptop
    60Gb 7200rpm

    NAS Terastation
    1Tb

    Firewire/USB external stroage
    200Gb 7200rpm WD Caviar SE (ICEYBOX)

    Thinking seriously at MS Home server, depending upon the limitation of h/disks (5 x sata + 1 x CD/DVD).

    80gb x2
    160gb

    In my file server:
    120gb x3

    In my other server:
    9gb x4 in RAID 5

    In my laptop:
    60gb

    Bit over a terabyte for me, most of which is in my fileserver. I'm hoping to move to the 2-3TB range sometime in the not-too-distant future, but I've got other priorities.
