On my work rigs, I currently have a total of 282.79TB of storage, including my internal & external setups, but not backups, which are on separate, dedicated drives.... but this is NOT because all I do is set around & download moar & moar bloated-ass gamz, pron, musak, and movies day after day after day....

It's because I do 3D/CAD/CAM work, and them files tend to get massively huge after multiple revisions and changes on their way to the final versions :D

Why does seemingly EVERY friggin thing here have to centered around gamz anywayz ?

What do you think of the 870 QVO MZ-77Q8T0BW at 402,99€ ?.. good for backup !

I have 5TB of total storage on my main PC (1TB NVMe boot drive and four 1TB SATA SSDs in RAID0 for data storage). About half of that storage is in use right now.

20230520_144048_HDR.jpg

(picture taken shortly after installation of the last two drives yesterday)

Then, on my server, I have eight 3TB HDDs in effective RAID5 for a total of about 20TB of usable space. I have about 6TB of space left on it.

(old picture of my server, but the drive array is still the same today)

Most of what I store on my server are Blu-ray rips, CD rips and FLACs, game backups, and full system backups of my main PC (as you should always do if you're stupid enough to run RAID0, like me).

They are good for storage files, when you write more than 78gb of data, it will throttle down to 150mb/s max. I have one in a external case.

Storage isn't only about size, I might add. Every self-respecting individual should have an SSD to boot from, and a separate drive (not partition) for backup. Important stuff, like family photos, should be duplicated onto multiple drives, in case one fails.

I play games but I am not a gamer.. I do own a 5800X3D but I prefer my 5900X :)

I have 2TB of nvme space, 1TB of SSD space, and 2TB of spinner space.. I just back my stuff up to the spinners every now and then, other wise they don’t spin. :)

^ I wanted that chip so bad, but it would have just been to smile whenever I opened up task manager :p
The only work I do on my PC is with Outlook and Office; the rest is just browsing, tv/movies and games.

As for storage, total system = 9.5TB before formatting:

500GB nvme (OS)
2TB nvme (games)
1TB sata ssd (random crap)
6TB hdd (storage) + backups on random other ones.

I really should just get a NAS setup one of these days.

1 TB is enough. Running 2 480GB NVMe SSDs, have space for 3 more plus whatever fits on SATA. Long term storage is on cold HDDs or network-attached. That said, also in the market to upgrade my server's HDD for some time. I want one of WD's Gold (formerly HGST Ultrastar) enterprise-grade drives, but they are sooo expensive.

A lot of aerial video files and RAW images so 18TB as main storage (in RAID 1) + 6TB (personal data) + 2TB all as HDD .
1TB NVMe for system and another one for prog cache.
4TB SSD for daily project use and another (old) 128GB SSD for final video export (and some games..).
so all in all, ~32TB. If it wouldn't for the RAID 1 it was 48TB.

I'm not gonna say what's enough becuase that's very dependent on the user but for me 5TB worth of 980 pros, 4TB worth of 860 evos, and 30TB of HDD seems to be comfortable.

On my secondary pc it's just 3TB of NVME and 2TB sata ssd is fine.

My unreal projects can be each 100gb

and I do computer vision for my PhD, so there are datasets of leaves. Grape, soybean, corn, tomato leaves around 4000 images for each and copies of them segmented, clustered, feature vectors, histograms, greyscale, hyperspectral.... (Lots of copies with minor incremental changes)

Games are around 2tb

i current have 2x 512gb on my system and i believe my next system it will be a 2tb nvme drive and that will be sufficient but i might opt for a 4tb is the prices are low enough.
I got a 500gb external drive for photos and some documents, which i regularly check and i change to a new external drive every 3 years since these portable drive can go funky.
As brands goes for nvme, i'd stick to samsung, crucial, wd and some others if the price and reviews are great, ive heard not so great things about sabrent although they are cheaper
As for portable drive i stick with WD or samsung, no more seagate for me since owning 4 of them they die out just after a year of use... i might move onto ssd portable storage

I have not owned a single Seagate hard drive which hasn't died or malfunctioned in some way. I just avoid them now, I'm fully aware that it's a me thing, but Western Digital has always treated me well for both my solid state and spinning rust needs

I just found the Toshiba 4Tb (basics) brand new 150 hours and 200x on/off (at time i used crystaldisk, by luck) had instable sectors, i lost files when i copied all on another backup in a hurry... i' told to myself, oh no, not Toshiba never again, but i discovered i have one Toshiba (big backup drive but only 2Tb) and too i'll have to do with this brand since they will certainly RMA for the same modele exchange !.. i never had an error on any HDD since 2005, even Maxtor (Sabre...) always have been perfect.

//

Good price btw 8Tb QVO 403 euros !?

Sucks about your HDD, man. RMA that thing. But yeah, 403 euros for that 8TB SSD is great, just be aware that it tends to get slow if you move too much stuff to it at once

So, if i move 7Tb files backup from HDDs, i set Synkback to pause every some 50/80gb ?... how much time it needs pause ?

On the 870 QVO the SLC cache is 78 GB in size, which probably means you want to transfer in 75 GB or so chunks for max speed, but honestly it has a 8 GB DRAM cache, it shouldn't be much of an issue

Alright, let me break down my current storage:
- 1TB, OS drive in my gaming rig. Not necessarily NEEDED, just good to have.
- 1TB, games SSD. Soon to be upgraded to a 2TB when budget allows.
- 8TB, storage HDD. Contains all of my critical data, in particular my OneDrive (which is ~1.8TB and climbing). Also contains some less-performance-intensive games.
- 8TB, storage HDD. Backup for the first HDD. Getting something so large without capacity to back it up was not negotiable.
- 2x2TB external HDD. Mirrors of my OneDrive.
- 1x4TB external HDD. Mirror of my OneDrive. Replacement for a recently deceased 2TB.
- 13TB, media server. Full of my games, movies, TV shows and other data I want to hoard. Nearly at capacity too, just about time to replace the oldest drive (3TB).

So in total: ~39TB of storage in my household. Not including my secondary laptop, tablet and the encrypted cloud storage location I back up my critical data to. I am a data hoarder, one who has far too many backups if you ask my friends.
