Huh? How does that work?

RAID doesn't make drives die faster...

(Is that what you meant? )

I have 2 in fact, an old 160GB external thats still full of 75% of my music.

Except that if you accidentally modify the files, the RAID isn't going to do you any good. It can't save you from yourself .

The backup is more likely to save you, if you're diligent about doing the copying.

120GB, I bought it a few years ago and I'll get a new one when I graduate... Maybe use this one as secondary!

I have 2x 200gb Seagate and a 1x 500gb Seagate.

I have a 500gb Western Digital HDD, which is about 75% full.

But since this is the only year I'll have access to a DC++ network, I'll likely be upgrading to 1TB of storage in the near future.

880gb...
80gb primary, 300gb music + videos, 500gb external backup

i was thinking of raid, but decided that an external hd with backup software is a lot safer and cheaper... and is not a hassle with auto-mirroring set on scheduled tasks on wednesdays at 4:40am

Over 1TB including backup drives.

120Gb Samsung in my iBook.

I also have a 500Gb WD in an external drive, but I didn't count that.

834 gb total usable, 910 "advertised". And I'm running out of space too, so I was looking at moving from my 250 gb drive to another 500 gb drive for my media.

why would anyone need more than 1 TB?

My music collection is currently about 800GB. So I need a 1TB drive to hold it all, and have space for future additions. And I need another (external) 1TB drive to back it up. And I have a 500GB drive (mostly filled) for windows, documents, pictures, videos, and whatnot. And another 500GB external to back that up. And another 100GB in the laptop.

So it can be very easy to use up 1TB and more. I'll probably be adding another 1TB WD GP drive in the future for additional photo storage, as those RAW files add up quickly.

I have nearly 780 GB of photos I've taken. I have approaching 3 TB of music, 5 TB of family videos and I haven't even touched games, data, programs etc.

I can't wait for 10 TB drives

1TB and 51GB
(500GB + 160GB + 160GB + 100GB + 100GB + 30GB + 10GB + 8GB + 4GB + 2GB + 1GB)
post #105 of 124
250 GB Seagate,
320 GB Western Digital,
500 GB Samsung (the best HDD brand I've ever had!)
-------
1070 GB

These 640 GB or 750 GB drives are getting very cheap, probably because the 1 TB drives are coming into the play -- they'll have the biggest gigas-per-dollar ratio.
