    I mean your total storage capacity, all your Hard drives (and possiblly all flash drives)combined.
  3. i have about 3.5-4 tb all together more or less

    a 1.5 tb
    a 1tb
    a 600gig
    a 500gig
    and a 90g ssd
  4. me, around ~4.8 tb
  5. internally: 8.5TB
    externally: 16TB
  6. Internal: 1.6TB
    External: 8TB
  7. Internal: 2 x 80gig
    1 x 40gig
    External: 1TB
    18gig in my phone ...lol

    And the parts are on there way for my new PC so there is a 1TB internal coming, almost doubling my storage ...lol
  8. 4x3TB - 12 TB
    2x2TB - 4 TB
    2x1.5TB - 3 TB
    6x30GB SSDs - 180GB (OS)

    So...a little over 19TB - at least in this system - my others only have a 6 or 8 TB.

    Oh...that's all internal. External makes my head hurt.
  9. goodgod 20tb is that home theater library?

    I usually don't designate my drives as internal or external because with exception of OS drive I use 3.5 and 2.5 in. sata bay and swap them as if they were thumb drives.

    How much does your rig weight lol.

    I actually put it on the scale - it's in a large Corsair 800D case with SLI, etc. 81lbs. So no LAN party with it.
  11. In working condition:

    2x2000000MB external
    2x1000000MB external
    2x500000MB 1 external, 1 internal
    3x320000MB 2x internal, 1 external
    1x120000MB SSD internal
    1x80000MB SSD internal

    Flash
    32000MB
    16000MB
    8000MB x2
    4000MB x2
    2000MB x2 (retired)
    1000MB x4 (retired)
    512MB x1 (retired)
    256MB x1 (retired)
    128MB x1 (retired)
    4MB x1 (retired)

    Broken one doesn't count, there could be some more flash drive, ide or older sata drives lying somewhere in working condition in drawers somewhere in my room but I am too lazy to find out. I feel guilty for not putting them in use, they were once my fastest/biggest (like toy story 3).

    Total=8240900MB

    Sadly, non of the flash drives are usb 3.0 so the fastest portable external storage is the 500000MB 2.5 portable HDD on usb 3.0 enclosure. :(

    Also, I don't know why people saying the caviar green drive fails a lot, my terabyte drives for storage are green drive and non fail so far.
  12. Pyree, is there a reason you used MB instead of GB or even TB? It's too early to do math.

    As for Green drives failing, I like them. I have four 3 TB greenies and 1 2 TB greenie. However, I would caution - from my own experience of using them in RAID.
  13. I have to include the 4MB flash drive from like maybe 2001 so they are in MB. Still in my study desk drawer and working (I actually think it is a 1.1 drive. It is sooo slow).

    Yes, the green drives are slow so they are prone to drop out in raid but there is a firmware fix for it.
  14. I don't think there is a firmware fix - at least for the new drives.
  15. ok, may be I didn't use the proper term because I don't remember the exact term. I google for it again, it's the "time limited error recovery utilities" to change the timeout threshold. So the utility doesn't work anymore on the newest green drive?
  16. Unless there's something new, my latest research showed the WD disabled that a few years ago. Now, all Green Drives suffer from the TLER problem when put in a RAID array.
  17. Ok my WD10EADS was before that so that's why. Well, if they die, I just have to be careful not to get the new green drive for raid then.

    ***! That leads to big problem because someone asked me whether they are ok for raid and I said they are and tell them to use tler......fail
