    10 terabite hard drives I don't really see them comming about till like 2010 or something. I would like a 10 terabite hard drive because I could store all I want the thing is though. When I harddrives move into that space range you will probably end up using more as data size increases.

    scuzzy drives go up to 1tb at least ( of course these are not for your average computer either more so for networks and big corporations )

    10tb I think will come before 2010 but still be pretty expensive. I know people with 2.5tb though but they seriously upgrade their rigs.

    Whole, that's a lot of space.

    Personally, I don't need that much.

    400 Gig is good enough for me.

    think about how long it would take for a 1tb drive to load. personally, i would prefer a solid state drive (i.e. flash) because of speed. i mean, regular disc drives are coming to their limit. anyhow, i think the largest solid state drive is 128gb. im not sure though. i think its by samsung or pny....

    well.. the kinda bad thing is their size... because of that they wont fit in a normal ATX box.. thats why they are extern.. and then you have to plug it in to your computer.. and then you have to make sure you have the right plug technique.. (USB 2.0, FireWire 800, FireWire 400 etc..)

    id love to have 10tb of space, just to be able to not worry about filling up my harddrive for awhile. I have a 200 gig drive now, and its driving me mad that im almost out of space.

    I have an 80 Gig hard drave. I've used slightly less than 30 gigs.

    I'd never use 10 TB.

    I've seen a bunch of 1 TB external hard drives, but never any more than that. O=

    thing is, they are looking to get rid of hdd and replace them with solid state in the next decade so the chances of us ever seeing a single 10tb hdd unit is low. What i have heard they are pushing is for the molecular storage ideas and practices. I read in a PC magazine that scientists in america had managed in controlled conditions to create a 2eb (ectabyte) molecular drive the size of a pinhead. It was stable for about an hour i believe before the molecules dispersed, but it was still damned impressive and, imo, damned scary

    Have fun defragging a 10tb HDD.

    I have 120gb and I don't think I will ever fill it up.

    you may be right, it could be exa and not ecta, but as far as i know, it's about 1024tb = 1 exa/ectabyte

    Ehr, STUPID idea. I would NEVER buy a 10tb HD.
    Just think. You store EVERY file you ever download on that one HDD, and then BAM! The hard drive fails.

    Thats 10tb of anime/manga/pr0n/games etc. down the drain.

    Yeah, I can't wait until I can put all of my data on one disk, have that disk crash, and lose it all since there isn't media out there large enough to back it all up! :nod

    Yes, he meant an exabyte, and an exabyte is a million terabytes.

    I've never filled my entire Hard Drive. I currently have 160 GB (spread across 3 HDDs), and one of the drives is totally empty, the others aren't even half full.

    I don't understand what you're putting onto your hard drive. I usually make DVD backups, as it's much safer, as HDDs can and will crash.

    dvd's can rot if u don't use the highest quality ones. Ask me how many irreplacable music cd's i lost due to using cheap discs that just stop playing one day.
