16TB and all’s well!
It’s the smell of a new hard drive. I just bought another 3TB in hard drive space which brings me to a total of 16TB. I have 9 external hard drives and two internal drives on this machine.
Now you may ask yourself, why would any sane person need that much space? The answer is, I store things. I store TV shows, music, movies and lots and lots of stuff. I’m actually converting my movies from DVD to MP4 format so I can watch them anywhere. I can play that on the iPad or the TV. I’m also putting all my TV shows on a server so I can watch whatever I want. It uses a ton of space but is far more convenient than running around looking for DVDs.
For anyone who wants to know, CloneDVD, CloneDVDMobile and AnyDVD are absolutely necessary if you plan to build a digital library. I tell you what though, moving 500GB worth of files around is an all day affair. You got to think ahead about folder structure.
