    I just ordered four 350GB Seagates to upgrade the fileserver with RAID5 storage of almost a terrabyte (you need to do this if you are sharing with Lord :p)

    Anyway - thought I would start a poll / thread to see what sort of HD space folks here like to have on their servers (please do not post about your desktops etc)

    I have a 1TB setup in my server - 250x4 - works like a treat ;)

    As long as I manage my data effectively as in killing stale records (I house backups for clients for a nice fee ;) ) I can stay within my space limits. I also archive some on DVD and store offsite in safety deposit boxes, for more fees :lick:

    Derek - wasn't yours a commercial disk array thinger rather than a file server? I seem to remember a thread on that, so why not remind me?

    I have a Buffalo TeraStation, but that is seperate for my own personal use and is offline. The file server itself is on the net and protected.

    I love to blow money :smoker:

    oh and Lord - please do not vote here, I already did so for our fileserver (and decided it came into the over 900 category, even though we effectively split it in half - since it is now going to be pwned by me with the expenditure I put in for the HD's)

    I guess if you already did it is too late - but I have a feeling the other one is from Derek since he posted on it also....

    About 600gb, ish! :p

    I might add that is spread over 6 main file servers at 6 different offices, together with another 2 application servers, exchange server and PMS server in the main office.

    i remember when 1gb was seem as enormous and a total waste of space, who could possibly ever use that much HD space haha
