Poll 1: How much storage do you have active on your PC?

Given the wide range of user apps on this forum (from simple web browser to media/data servers), I am wondering how much storage is attached to your PC. A sort of unscientific look at the distribution of SPCR users vs. GBs. :D

Please include all active SSD/HDDs and don't include those backup drives laying around. Given that people have multiple computers, please vote with your primary PC in mind. Or, vote a couple of times. Pretend it's Chicago.

This poll will run for a week.

2.2TB and change on my main box, mostly in RAID arrays. Need more. Lots more.

28 TB in raid setups via the network, ~1TB locally

Only use for local storage is os + apps/games, everything else i use is on the servers, so they kinda have to count...

2 x 150 for daily stuff.
640 and 120 for backup and lugging around.
Before I went RAID I was v happy with just 150.
Oh, and 100 in my second living room PC.

5TB right now... waiting for 2tb disks to come down in price a little before i go for >10TB

that said, 5TB is extremely cramped. i probably wont be comfortable until i have around 20TB
