That's nothing. ;-)

I've currently have 36 HDDs with a total capacity of 8,3 TB.
7,4 TB used and 0,9TB "free". A "projection" of about 1TB of missing
things and another TB of recordings still on DVDs that i hadn't copied
over. (Note to myself: Remember to by a HDD each month for the next 3
month, so that i can finally put the DVD "priode" behind me.)
And above i haven't counted the about 1TB of "misc" space i have.

And most of it i have actually watched, it took a few years to record
all of that!
