250GB NVMe SSD for OS, programs, and AAA games, 500GB SATA SSD for every other game, and a 4TB HDD for mass media storage.

1 x 1TB SSD, 1 x 128GB SSD, 1 x 256GB SSD, 2 x 3TB HDD, 1 x 4TB external HDD, 1 x 6TB external HDD.

These are the ones connected currently.

Why in the world would you need that much space, holy crap on a cracker.

On topic: currently using a 1TB HDD in my laptop, but my build will have a 120GB SSD + 2TB HDD.


Why are people shocked that someone may need allot of HDDs these days?

I have a 4TB on my server dedicated to just handling backups of different systems.

Not that I'm complaining or anything. But that just seems insane. Unless you have to save some ridiculous amount of data (and I can't imagine what that would be), I can't see a single reason having more than 10TB at the absolute most. Unless you use it for some other reason that isn't for saving videos + pictures + games.

Guess you could use a 16TB setup for having a buttload of games installed, but that's mostly lazyness, I think.

Not everyone is just a mere consumer. If you're a content creator who likes to archive all your videos then it's pretty easy to fill up several hard drives.

1x 1TB and 2x 2TB HDDs

with my DVD burner i've maxed out my available mobo ports xd

might switch to an external BD burner and free up the slot for another HDD at some point.

I have two 74 GIG hard drives in my PC, an 8 GIG flash drive & a 32 GIG flashdrive. Then a 4 GIG SD card for my phone & a 16 GIG SD card for my tablet.

I don't really have a gaming rig (I game on consoles & handhelds) that's why its so small.

There are different scenarios I can think of.

To use your example, HD films can easily be over a dozen GBs and people may have a slow connection or just like the convenience of having their games readily available (I don't see how this is lazy, it's not on consoles where you may get up to change a disc).

RAID as well can require multiple disks even though the usable size is less e.g. RAID 1 where you use 2x4TB for 4TB content.

Content creation can take up allot of space, a low compressed capture can easily add up (which ideally you want until the final version to avoid quality loss).
