Comment: Missing option: ALL OF IT. (Score 2, Insightful) 398

by COMICAGOGO (#23413648) Attached to: How Much Data Storage Do You Really Need?
I find that as I am able to store larger and larger amounts of data my saving habits change. I remember years and years ago working on a computer with an, at the time, large 800MB drive. I had to constantly choose what programs and data to delete because the drive was just full all the time. I also remember not having a problem with it because it was just the way things were.
Now I don't delete anything. It all goes into the backup array, which is currently at 10TB. I work with uncompressed video, audio and picture files. It is not uncommon to have folders with 100GB of data in them.
I will never have enough storage.
