Are you looking for the max capacity of a specific drive or hard drives in general?

Right now the biggest 3.5" hard drive capacity (commercially) is 3TB.

But, Samsung has recently reached the 1TB mark on a single platter, and a 3.5" drive is capable of 5 platters I believe.

Seems like magnetic storage is going to be the most ideal and ever increasing long-term storage solution for a while.

2.5" is 1.5TB.
