How long do you guys think it will be until we start seeing Petabyte harddrives?


Going by Moore's law, and considering you can buy 4tb drives today, it should be 16 years, though my guess would be less than that even. 10-15 would be my guess

Skyrim? Even with lots of mods, it only takes up 7GB.


More like 8.5gb for just the data files if you have the DLCs/addons and no (other) mods. With mods Skyrim hits about 22.1gb for me.

one day i'm going to get some many hardrives i'll get lost


You could RAID them or even use the dynamic drive thing available in Windows XP and later versions to make the OS thing that multiple drives are one single drive. It's a bit riskier, but it can cut down on drive letter clutter if you're more worried about organization than performance.

In this thread are "digital" hoarders. I use to be like this until I realized half the stuff I had I'd never use and didn't care about and I've never used more then 500gb on my 1tb.


Eh, yes and no. In my case it's because I acquire a lot of stuff I'd want or use, but I keep getting sidetracked by other stuff. Granted that describes most of the stuff on my HD, but unlike real "hoarders" I actually clean my crap out on a semi-regular basis.

I'm sitting on one WD Black 1tb drive, 2 Hitachi 1tb drives, two 500gb drives (one SATA, one IDE), and a 120gb drive, and out of all of that I've got 848gb free with a few GB in the recycling bin. I really need to get around to playing something other than Rift, Borderlands 2, Space Pirates & Zombies, Torchlight 2, Oblivion, and Skyrim when I should be playing other games to either beat them and delete them or dislike them and delete them. If I did that I could probably free up a terabyte or two of space. >_<

I just purchased a 3 TB drive. I also have a 1 TB drive and a 256GB SSD.

I will not run out of space any time soon.

I've got a 2TB with only around 20GB free and a 1TB with around 10GB free. :-/

I need more space.

3.6 TB of HD space with only about 1 TB used so far. However, I back up a lot of stuff on USB and external hard drives, so I've got another 2 TB of data used technically.

I have Skyrim and Fallout new vegas taking like 70-90 GB each, add in 50-60 games to that and a bunch of other stuff and I currently feel like my 2TB HD will be full.

Why do people always make porn jokes anytime you mention downloading anything or mention storage on your HDD? Who would possibly download porn, let alone hundreds of gigs of it. I have several TB of files, most of it is steam games or movies and anime.
