Me?  I'm a recovering music journalist...I just have tons of music I love.  I'm at 1.2TB just on stuff ripped from CD to ALAC; when I start to record my 1000+ pieces of vinyl, it's going to get ugly.  Only about 10% of that vinyl was ever released in a digital format...I have years of work ahead of me.  For *that* project I'm going to want nuclear-proof backups; reripping my CDs after an external WD disk failure sucked up weeks of time.

Hard to answer your survey question because the digital music library is a work in progress. In an external NAS drive, devoted to music only, I have two 3TB hard drives (one storage, one RAID backup). Currently, music fills about 500GB -- but I still have a lot of CDs to rip, so I'll use a lot more of that disk space eventually....

The vast majority of my music is on CD's (stop snickering).  The only stuff 'stored' on a hard drive are the single tracks that I have bought.  I load up the Cowan J3 with what I want to listen to on a trip, or for the week's walking, and go.  So, less than 250 GB, but far more than that on the CD's, which get listened to all the time at home.

A U-shaped distribution. Interesting...

Oh...so it's all my music and media? Assuming media includes my games, I easily tear up 1TB of my space.

RAID5 array consisting of 5 2TB HDDs with the usable capacity of 8TB. 4.4 TB to go - but DSD128  masters and equally DSD128 needledrops are reducing the space available by day. Next planned addition is similar RAID5 array consisting of 5 4TB HDDs - giving another 16TB of storage. Would love to go to more secure RAID than RAID5, but available capacity with given number/capacity of disks is severely reduced by this measure(s).

 

Just needledrops of around 3K LPs will require approx 12 TB ...

I only have 200GB for Music...  What tipped the scale for me was the TV shows and movies that I have digitized for the family.  Not stuff i use a lot, but the rest of my family does.

 

I voted >1TB

my HDD is 750GB in total, but movies/music/games and all that don't even take up half of it. Most of my gaming is done on consoles. I also have 160GB iPod which I use  around 24GB, a 16GB Walkman with 9GB filled, a 8GB Walkman with 5 GB filled, a smaller 4GB Walkman with 3GB filled.

I have about 500gb of flac/cd rips.  about 80gb on my phone of mp3's.

I have about 20tb of media on a file server however.

Currently running a 2 TB media drive, but I plan to add a second one in a few months to provide some redundancy.  Honestly, anime holds the largest amount of my drives since my music isn't exactly a high end format.

I love solid state drives. Can't go back to old hhd.

I was about to post the same thing. People seem to either have small, possibly selective media collections or vast, multi-terabyte ones.
