Hmm, results surprised me. 
I use about 5TB of external storage just about all of it is music.  I think pretty evenly split between hi-res music files, bootlegs and legit releases.  99% lossless.  It doesn't include cds(1000s) and vinyl. Just a music junky.

I voted for >1TB, but, indeed, I have an external 3TB drive almost filled with DVD-A and SACD images, 2TB almost filled with CD rips, hi-res flacs and vynil rips, and over 300GB on a local drive, unsorted. It's over 5TB in total, and vynil rips library is growing very fast. I keep music-related BD images separately - in my movies archive.
 
Hope it helps :wink:

Large NAS drive, over 800gb of music files. CD's ripped as wav files, Hi-Res PCM and DSF rips/downloads and needle drops.
Mostly CD's, I think I still have the first CD I bought in the early 80's.

Media is definitely a thing in itself.
With HD movie files hitting 40GB+, TB isn't even that much anymore. Perhaps 25 movies if you really pack them in.
Whereas music files, even at their largest, are 500MB/file? Even with a 20-song album that's 10GB

I store all my music on Google Play Music. When my account reaches 20.000 files, I'll create a new account to further expand my music collection.

I often just have to kind of reallocate space on my HDD for new music and move my stale old sustenance out of the way.
 
Having access to as much music in as high fidelity as I could possibly ask for is just such a pleasure.
 
:) Stay smiling fellers.

This is a difficult one to answer really as all my music is on CDs - I do not have any downloads at all.
 
I have, though, several drives of between 500GB and 1TB to hold and archive all my 24/96 session recordings and masters which I have recorded myself.

  Please help me with my quick survey (above), as we try to understand a bit more how you're storing your digital media--specifically, what your storage needs are. Also, if you have any comments you can offer regarding anything you think worth mentioning about your storage needs or demands, please share your thoughts.
 
Thank you for your help answering my survey.
 
Best Regards,
Jude
More options should be given for the vote.
I have 2TB lossless compressed CD format audio data like flac/ape, and 3TB high resolution audio data with PCM 24bit/88/96/176/192/384khz format, or DSD64 format.
If it comes to blue ray audio, one album can takes up 30-50GB space, while a CD rip just takes around 300MB per album.

Just adding feedback; the portable setup is obviously very different to at home setup in terms of storage and file sizes etc.
