    Are those the normal typical users?
    Unsure if they are normal. Copiertech just mentioned he has 4.6TB of software.

    I'm not a big data horder either. For example, I will keep ISO files for OS's, but I don't keep them forever. For example, I won't keep my Windows XP or Vista ISO's as I would not use them again. Same for my Linux systems, I don't need a historical archive of CentOS Linux releases from the last 20 years. I will usually keep my version 6 (just the latest version), and version 7 (maybe the last 2-3). Other than that, I dump them.

    I don't collect movies and such on my PC. No interest. But I know lots of people who do.

    So you have a lot of friends and family, as well as yourself, who needs 80+TB of HD space in one PC? That's the normal user?

    Dang, I must be in the extreme minority with my paltry 4 TB of SSD space in my desktop.

    I only have so much software due to collecting Mac software including all OS versions and the recovery disks for each machine from 1998 to 2008.

    LOL, define normal.

    For some a 128GB HDD is abnormally big and the user will never come even close to filling it. For someone else a 80TB+ RAID array is abnormally small and the user will run out of space in no time.

    For me 10TB is not quite big enough. But I doubt I will ever need 80TB+ space. That could of course change if I find some new hobby in the artistry world, like 3D asset creation or music and movie creation...

    Well I have 4TB of drives in this computer and about twice that much in backup drives, couple of 1000 DVDs notwithstanding. So I could probably fill up up to 40TB.

    I would not put you in the minority, with 4TB of SSD space. 4TB of SSD space is bragging territory.

    Right, I get that. I've been into Linux since around 1999 myself. But I don't keep all of these old and ancient Linux releases. I'll never use them again, so I dumped them.

    Most of us here have bragging territory parts. You used to remind us of that every chance you got. Still do

    Anyway by ignoring my question you answered it

    Peace

    My Dell 13" ship date was getting pushed back into early next year. I canceled it and ordered a new Thinkpad. I don't feel like waiting till next spring for it.

    Sorry, I didn't answer your question because I thought it was rhetorical. We were discussing somebody building a $12,000 PC, right. Clearly that's not the "average", or we wouldn't be bothering to discuss it here.

    No, I do not have a lot of friends and family who use that kind of storage. I know of a couple of coworkers running arrays in the 40TB range for their home data environments. Obviously they are in the minority, as would the person here who builds a $12000 system. Clearly that's far outside the realm of normal users.

    There is no winning here with you.
    --If I say something that could in any way be construed as a criticism of who might need 80TB, you jump on my case and tell me that not everybody likes using antiquated hardware like I do.
    --If I don't bother to mention anything about 80TB being extreme, then you get on my case ascertaining if everybody I know has 80TB and it's normal.
