With five terabytes at my disposal, I have to begin the task of filling all that space. It started with about half a terabyte of shared data used by me and Laralee. That’s our music collection, digital photo album, fifteen years of e-mail, hundreds of television shows, and a metric ton of software thrown in for good measure. Then I mixed in a generous serving of backup files from my web hosting company and some other clients who pay me to store offsite backups of everything.

And yet I still find myself with a few terabytes empty. I suppose it’s only a matter of time… today I wonder how I can possibly fill all that space, and in six months I’ll be shopping for another hard drive enclosure.

Ahh, technology.
