508 GB - a 500 in my desktop (of which only 400 is formatted), and 8 GB in the laptop.
Ive never managed to fill 200gbs let alone 5TB... how much porn do you guys need!
LOL yeah, 15 people with 5 terabytes or more. What you peeps doing? Backing up the Internet?
it fills up very quickly when you deal with HD content. 1 movie means 15-40gb gone.
Yeah, the RIAA clearly will think we're all evil pirates!!! ARRRR! But on a serious note, I backup my father's work stuff through a VPN and all the family photos... Just getting into photography takes up alot of space (or time if you want to delete all the bad pictures). The there's a copy of the CD collection... Finally, converting family VHS to DVD (and Divx) takes up alot of space during conversion when I like to keep everything uncompressed.
Then there's the daily backups of webservers, Tivo type stuff... ach, the list goes on and on and on and on and on and.......
Pre-format 500+500+400+160+160+120+120+74 and a 120 external.
2 x 200gbs in my pc
30gb in a laptop
and 80gb external usb
The 2 linux drives 2x20gb
The 2 spare seagates 2x80gb
My current drive WD 160gb (I need RAID and more space )
The laptop 40gb
And finally the new servers coming to me this X-mas
2x40gb (roughly) in each so an extra 160gb
Total: 560gb which still isn't enough for meh
1x 150gb Raptor, 1x 36gb Raptor, 2x 500 Samsungs and a 160 Samsung over 2 pc's !
2 x 400, 2 x 300. Hopefully replacing 2 x 300 and 1 x 400 for 2 x 500 soon
Hmm.. let's see.. ..I didn't get around to counting it all until now..
In my main rig: Seagate 320 GB SATA + Seagate 160 GB SATA + Seagate 80 PATA + WD MyBook Essential 250 GB
My Wife's pc: Seagate 80 GB PATA (that's more than plenty)
My new server: WD RE 160 GB SATA + two WD RE 320 GB SATA
That'll be (bringing up CALC.EXE) .... 1690 GB - Wohoo! I knew that it would be more than one TB but didn't know it be past one and a half!
36 gb + 2x250gb + 40 gb =D
120+80+80=200 enough for me because i write movies to dvd and keep hdd clean
Main file dump system has 160+300+300+250=1010gig. Fear of loosing the data means I set up another system with 2 500s with the boot drive being a 74 gig drive. My daily worker system is my laptop with a 60gb driver and a USB 120GB drive to hold my work files. (It's a lot of source. It takes forever to scan with virus/malware scanners.) I have another external 80 gig drive and anotehr system with an 80 gig internal. So that's about 2.4TB. Actual usable is less since that's across multiple computers with their own OSes and such.
File Server is about 2.06Tb in RAID 5 array (formatted) and about 600Gb of non RAID storage
Media PC is has 120Gb of storage in 2 x 60Gb 2.5" drives RAID 0
Main PC has 2 x 250Gb drives in RAID 0 - With 4 500Gb MyBooks as backup to my RAID array.
Laptop has 80Gb with another 80Gb External 2.5" drive.
I have another 3 x 300Gb old drives to mount in the file server...Maybe not.
So...All in all about 6.2Tb's and its about 70% full.
290GB total - in marketing terms.
main rig - 60+40
main laptop - 60
messing around laptop - 30
unused dual p3 linux box - 40
usb hdd - 60 (used to carry stuff between work & home mainly - like audio books. gotta do something between calls)
also have another 20bg 2.5" drive, in the top drawer that has the XP install for the spare laptop, so i can switch in case of disaster.
and a 30Gb usb drive at work, that stays there as i use it for imaging pc's and storing documentation backups.
this doesnt include the folder with about 100 dvd's of backups either.
Laptop: 120 SATA
Main rig: 40 + 160 PATA
HTPC: 6 + 2x 80 PATA RAID-0
Server 1: 8 PATA
Server 2: 17 PATA
Server 3: 3x 9 ULTRA2-SCSI
Dell XPS Laptop = 160gb
External USB = 120gb
Main Computer = 2 x 500gb raid0 = 1tb
My turn. 15 Maxtor 250's in three 1TB Raid 5 arrays. Actually 14 now, 1 pooped the bed and I reformatted the remaining 250's as single drives(PITA). Linux toolchains, my wife's pictures for her eBay store, every CD I ever owned into MP3s, most of the DVDs I purchased backed up, serious PVR HD movie collection. Stuff accumulates.
