What could you possibly need 7 Terabytes pf data for.  One of the largest supercenter stores in the USA with over 300 locations, over 60,000 employees, $18 billion in annual sales and hundreds of thousands of product runs the entire company on 1 Terabyte.  Unless you are downloading and keeping the entire library on Netflix I think you have overkill. 

i have external 1- 4 Terabyte drive, 1 -2 Terabyte, 1- 1 Terabyte, and 1.5 Terabytes of internal drives. and I am around 70% full. 

 

I just got a 4k gopro and my homemade porn collection is growing fast. i will need a giant server farm soon.

I bought one of these to backup my NAS. Works fine for what it is - a backup, but I'd never trust it as my primary data store. One minor error and everything is gone.

My NFL games collection is 1 TB! A thousand movies is another 1 TB. British TV is 3 TBs US and foreign TV is around 1 TBs and porno is another 2 TBs. It all adds up! All the good stuff I have ripped from YouTube is at least another 1 TB. (YouTube deletes a lot of channels so it's best to grab the content and store it offline.)

 

I already have two copies of everything. This 8 TB drive is to back up the most important stuff and send it home to the UK for storage for when I return. 

 

Overkill would be collecting and saving everything. I've deleted and discarded more than I have saved! I just don't like relying on 'the cloud' for my media.

What he's talking about is the corporate data... as in ledgers, balance sheets, maybe ERP whatever....

 

Not the actual user data. My movies run into 4TB, porn close to 4TB, photos into 1TB, and I'm frugal. BluRay rips can be up to 40Gb a movie.

unreliable at best!

I've been buying the WD drives for decades... never had a problem.

So have I, but did have problems. Eventually replaced most of them with Seagate. 2TB Barracuda are the fastest spinners on the market.

Still have six 1TB WD Green that I don't use anymore, some in USB enclosures. Anybody wants, I'll sell them cheap....

Ah, well, I said I didn't have a problem, not that they haven't failed or broken.

 

As everything is backed up, when a drive fails, (happens once every few years) it's simply replaced.

No problem.

 

This new drive will be loaded one time with media and will become a 'read-only' drive in the future.
