I'll volunteer to do it. All you have to do is put the funds together for me. I'll be a good sport and take a bullet for you guys.

The problem with these drive sizes getting so large is that the speed is not increasing fast enough to keep up with it. Imagine backing up a couple 2.5TB disks. It would take forever.

thats where RAID 1 would come in handy, imagine paying for two of those 1 TB SSD's to make a RAID array!!!

You'd probably want to set it up so that the backup drive was run by a different PSU, though. I mean, if your PSU goes and takes everything with it (which is rare, but can happen) then both drives are gone as well. RAID1 isn't a fail safe. You should always have backups in more than one physical location.

Once they reach 4TB they'll have a hard drive with more storage capabilities than a human brain.

You can't compare human brains to HDDs We use around 10%....I wonder what happens to the remaining 90%...Horniness?
Nah...

Ok, well let me fix it. Once they reach 4TB they'll have surpassed the amount of storage 10% of the human brain uses (the amount we have access to).

If only we could have the know-how to use the rest...

4TB is a lot of stuff...but on isohunt...this is how much data is online:

10,229.48 TB
4TB is still a fart.
