1.7tb
Authored by: bedouin on Mar 09, '08 09:51:12AM

1.7tb here. I only counted machines that are mine. If I added in my dad's I'd get another 70gb. I didn't include stuff like my iPod or flash drives either.

I also did not include my Classic II, which *is* networked and accessible over Appletalk. That would bump me up to 1.8tb since it has a 500mb HD in it :) I'll be adding another 500gb drive soon.

When you work on video and audio projects, and like to keep complete, uncompressed backups of your work, it's *VERY* easy to fill up hard drives.

1.7tb

Amen to that.

I've managed to fill about 60-70% of my 2.2 GB or so of hard drive space, mostly with photos, video, and backups. My Immediate family has about 1.1 TB of space across three computers, and almost all of it is full of photos and video - probably 80% or more.

One thing I didn't realize is the space that's used by the OS and applications of the 6 Macs that make up this 2.2 GB total - it's probably close to 50 or 60 GB of OS and App data across the lot, if you include the games. ;)
