    If you back up your big drives with disk imaging, for example, the images are compressed, and only contain used data, so will be smaller than the source disk. However, there will usually be a set of significantly smaller images (representing differences with respect to the initial (base ) image, as you update your disk, and update its backup. Reckon on perhaps 1.5x to 2x your used data for an image set, depending on how many different dates you wish to be able to restore to.

    Also depends if you use differential or incremental imaging- the latter needs somewhat less space.

    If you just elect to keep a single copy (not the best idea) then the storage space you need will be smaller.

    There are plenty of backup strategies and tools as I'm sure you know.

    Since I started with 8" floppy disks (1.44Mb each if I recall) I don't think I've ever lost anything very significant. Yet.

    Of course, if you have super-fast upload speed you could back up to a cloud service if you have enough storage allocated... that would save you the cost of disks, replacements, physically securing them and make your data available anywhere you can access that service. (Might not be so in China, for example).

    Have the external hard drives backed up? This is actually one big concern I've always had at the back of my mind. All my important stuff are actually on those external hard drives and I can't afford to buy another 4 TB just to have 2 copies of everything. What exactly do you mean by back up?
    Hi.
    Just wanted to mention this.
    Hard Disk Sentinel is free today on Bits du Jour. This program monitors all hard drives connected to the system and warns you when a drive begins to show signs of failure, so you have time to grab your data and replace it. I have the Pro Family version and put it on all my systems. Might want to grab it while it's free and try it out. It's available to "transfer" to another owned computer, and doesn't require you to install before the giveaway is over, so it's perfect for you to get now, and install when you get your new hard drive.

    You missed the important part, 100% performance, why would I? At this point I'll just use it for as long as I can, no point wasting money.

    Looks like you're going to die in 8 days. Before that, expect unpredictable bouts of ill health, typified by erratic behaviour, confusion, loss of consciousness and forgetfulness.
