This is something I've been thinking about.

Computer storage is constantly growing, and I'm wondering what different perspectives on how much storage space for data is needed for different people.

Personally, I have 1TB worth of combined storage space. I don't use all of it currently, but I use a much bigger percentage in the last year than I used to.

Up until a few months ago the biggest hard drive I had was a 250GB one. I only recently got a 1TB drive, but it has less than 180GB of stuff on it (and most of it is anime.)

I don't use much storage at all... though I doubt I could get away with 500MB with the size bloat of modern files, 320GB feels like overkill :P

Surely your retro computer museum doesn't require a lot of hard drive space between them?

Heh my main machine has a 480GB SSD and 2TB HDD in it, not doing too badly here :P Also a ton of externals, mainly for backups, etc. (barely delete stuff but I do backup videos, music, etc. to various external HDDs and flash drives, etc.)

As someone who keeps an archive of my videos, I need as much storage as I can get my hands on.

I have my current video archive sitting on my 2TB disk, but I think I need to bump that up soon.

Most of the ones that have a hard drive have more than a GB, actually :P (Mostly because it's hard to even find smaller CF/SD cards than that, and solid state > 30 year old hard disks any day)
