    I had a feeling they were. That's pretty much the only way they can be "green".

    1TB is far too much data to trust to a single disk.

    meh. I'm about to buy a 1TB or 750GB drive simply for music and videos I download. Nothing I cannot replace. I will relegate my 3x 250GB to storing the few things I really need to keep.

    :rolleyes: Whatever. 1TB is nothing these days. If you're that paranoid about your data it doesn't matter how large or small the drive is, you should be backing up.

    We have a 4TB fileserver at work. It's half full and it's been that way for almost three years now. And we work with data files that are >1GB apiece.

    If you really have so much data that you're casually buying a 1TB drive to store it on, and you expect to upgrade to an even bigger drive in the next couple of years, then you need to dig through your shit and get rid of the garbage. I guarantee you there's a few .TMP files and a few corrupt movies somewhere in there; hell, you probably don't even remember what 3/4 of it is.

    And it stops being an issue when drives that large have been around long enough that it's obvious they're not prone to failure. That's not the case yet.

    .



    that's the problem. storage is so cheap nobody cares about going through shit to weed out the old stuff. do a search by date and see how much hasn't been touched in 4+ years.......and start deleting.

    Yeah, because deciding what's worth keeping requires paying attention to the stuff on the drive -- which you would have done already if it were actually worth paying attention to. So just wipe out anything that hasn't been accessed in a year or more, unless it catches your eye and you know it's something important.
