How long would 58 Tb last you? - Page 12

post #111 of 119
I do a bit of video editing. Fraps will use 100gb for a few hours worth of recording, but then it's chopped down in a video editor to like 400mb to 2gb a clip. So I'd probably use it in like 20 years to be honest, because I delete my videos once I'm done with a series with them and once they're on youtube.

that would last me literally forever
I have never used more that 150-ish gb

It would last me a fair while, I currently have 13TB in my Drobo with about 9TB usable.

Im starting to collect BD rips so it could fill up pretty quickly

If the current sizes of everything never changed, I would never get close to filling up 10TB, much less 58. You have to factor in increases though, like games/apps being an order of magnitude bigger and higher res movie/audio in the future if you wanted to get an accurate figure. No way to really do that, as we have no idea how fast or how much each of those will grow in size.

In 10 years, it may take 58TB to store what would today take 15TB, for instance. As in, 20 games, 20 movies may only take 15TB today but 20 games/20 movies will most likely take a substantial amount more in 10 years. I know, I'm over-thinking things for such a simple question

It would last me a long time as far as I know. However I would rather get less now and add more as needed. The way the computer world is you would be much better off saving the money and see what comes out over time. Get what you need right now, because tomorrow there will be bigger and better things.

and thats a good way to think about it, some are already experiencing this change from dvd to blurays 10 dvd's with decent quality and so fourth is around 6-10GB, blurays of those same movies can be somewhere between 270-325GB. On top of that once you rip said bluray movie you never want to do it again especially if you have a large collection, right now I'm sitting at about 30 blurays and i have only had a player since march.
At this rate i would have a couple TB filled in no time flat if i ripped them.

Now are these bits or bytes?

Are you editing/creating that media? In that case, it won't last very long at all.

I have 11TB of storage in my home system(3x3tb+2x1Tb), collectively I have about 2tb free. I add about 50-60GB of data every month or so average, occasionally peaking as much as 300-400gb in a month. Lets just say 58TB = 58,000GB(nice even number), at 60GB a month average that's roughly 80years; 58,000/(60gb per month*12 months per year). Of course that's based on current storage needs, I'm certain that will be much shorter, something like 15-20years.

My work system can go through a 3tb drive in about a month(video, audio editing, 3d graphics)
