Congratulations on that. I remember when the FTP hit 2TB, that wasn't too far away, at least if I remember correctly. Also, statistics, yay! The site's growth should be exponential, shouldn't it? That would pose some interesting questions...

Congratulations! So 4TB, I've only got a 1TB external drive (of which ~30GB free), so I literally could not download everything in your archives!
Although personally I still find 4TB looks a lot more than 4058.52GB. Even though its 1 digit instead of 5, terabyte looks so much more impressive than gigabyte these days. Still waiting for 1PB, that will be truly amazing. Anyone want to guess when Betaarchive gets to 1petabyte? Maybe 20-30years? Or will there be a sudden surge in hard drive size in 201x?

Whoa! That's cool. My external HDD is only 1 TB yet. And in my download queue I have 560 GB for now, though my HDD has only 200 GB left. I can't keep myself from downloading stuff from here though I'm running outta' space!
