A variation of: What is the biggest folder on your hard drive?

Post here how many harddrives (including external) you have, size total, size used, size free.
Total is REAL size not posted size on harddisk
Example:
500GB is actually 465GB so count the 465GB.

Harddrives: 5
Total size: 1345GB.
Size used: 583GB.
Size free: 762GB.

I have deleted all virtual machines and started over again so the size was
Size used: 1083GB
Size free: 262GB

Use this template:
Harddrives:
Total size:
Size used:
Size free:

Harddrives: 32x1TB
Total size: 27.9TB
Size used: 27.1TB
Size free: 753GB

For those of you who gets confused with these numbers... The drives are split across two 16-drive RAID5 arrays, thus giving me 30 drives of total avaliable space. One of these 1TB drive holds 931.5GB usable data. Server holds three HighPoint RocketRAID 2340 RAID-controllers, each handling 16 SATA2-drives.

And for those of you that wonders... movies (mostly HD (bluray, HDDVD)), tv-series, games, apps, personal video projects (uncompressed video takes space!), music (in non-destructive APE format), emulators.... all this takes a lot of space... and yes, I got a well paying job and no social life to spend money on (H)

WTF, 27.9 Terrabyte?
Thats must have been expensive.
In our country you pay about
€ 7968,--
About €249,- per disk of 1TB.
€0.25 = 1GB

Looks like mrpijey uses 1TB hard disks (announced at CES 2007). (Edited 26/Nov/2009)

Only a server case can do alot of drives. My dream plan (FTP server 4x750G in RAID0+1 + system 2x80G in RAID1) fills all 5.25 bays on my favorite case.

mrpijeys server has no "case" as such... ;) I'll let him explain if he wishes. He has asked me not to provide specific information.

As with mrpijey, I have fallen to the act of collecting full Blu-ray discs and HD DVDs (I'm being totally serious here, you can never have enough porn in HD). Unfortunately, I'm just a poor undergrad with no job.

My last purchase was the 500GB WD on the 25th of last month and it only has 75GB remaining :(

It's actually a whole set of Western Digital GP 1TB drives :) The Hitachis are quite unstable, and get very hot which isn't ideal if you got so many of them.

As with the case... mine is a custom built case, built it from a cheap IKEA glass door cabinet. It holds 36 harddrives, 2 optical drives, two mainboards (server and router), a full 1U corp switch, two patch panels (2U), 4 ATX power supplies, a 17" flatscreen monitor, a KVM and a keyboard/mouse :)

But if you want a "real" case, then CoolerMaster has a set of hightowers (CoolerMaster Stacker) that can each hold 16 harddrives with its included drive bays (which I use in my cabinet). Got two of those Stackers, but I quickly outgrew them.

Cool casemodding.
As computer cases are a bit tricky (slots/panel), making a case rack should be cool. The cables go out of the cases, going to the rack. (Edited 26/Nov/2009)
Creating a custom case is very hard. (Edited 26/Nov/2009)
One more idea is making a hole in the format of a computer case and then stick the back side of each case on the holes.
CoolerMaster Stackers have PLENTY of space, but doesn't have enough space for putting HDD fans with my plan. (Edited 26/Nov/2009)

The harddrive cartridges that CoolerMaster makes for the Stackers already come with fans. Each cartridge can hold 4 harddrives, and there is a huge fan cooling them. 4 cartridges, 16 drives cooled by 4 fans.
