Why do people buy 4TB drives? Seems overkill unless you work in media or have a business

Ded srs 4TB is a shitton of storage even for modern standards. Probably the disk will break way before you fill it up if you give it a normal use. Unless your intention is to have a huge movie and series library, you never uninstall games or you download too much porn in 4K resolution 4TB seems overkill unless you work in media (I know video, animation and photo files can be huge) or you own a business and need to keep lots of important data for your records. 1TB is more than enough if you uninstall games after completing them or if you're not a data hoarder AKA never delete files you don't use or need anymore.
 
I have an 8TB external drive which I store a PC backup on + media. For internal storage 4TB on a single drive is kinda crazy
 
I have 30TB of storage and use most of it for games/videos/used to be porn. It's unnecessary, but I got it cheap, so whatever.
 
Games nowadays can take up a lot of space, 100GB isnt uncommon. Also some need it for downloading porn

Yeah but typically after completing a game you uninstall it. Specially if it's single player and doesn't have multiple endings or many collectibles.

You gotta be a sick ass nigga to download porn. I don’t even feel comfortable having it in my search history.

I can see why people do it. No need to look through 20 different websites to find the perfect porn to jerk off to

My Empornium account has over 10TB downloaded.
 
i torrent tons of shit and in general i like archiving stuff, i have 2TB and it's barely enough lol. my weebshit folder is almost 1TB on its own, my next build will probably have 4TB + my current HD
 
What about the guys who legit possess 70+ TB of cp and get arrested for it

I wish I archived more back a few years more shit that I had. I have a good amount of archives but I should’ve archived a lot more
 
My storage is mostly for games now, though. Every game on Retroachievements, that's like 3TB. Then a lot of games off Fitgirl, that's taking about 15TB now.

I have 4TB. I think it was worth it for the amount of porn I accumulate.
 
4TB doesnt seem like that much in 2024

I downloaded porn when I had a shitty laptop that even struggled streaming videos. Like they lagged and buffered so download and watch offline was the best way. It's also useful in case they start asking for ID to watch porn because muh age verification just like they do in some US states.
 
i sell porn i scraped from random sites. retard normfags cant pirate them self. finances the drives and some copes

Kek I bet your clients are boomers who don't know how to use torrents or video downloader browser extensions. Though sites like xvideos let you download even without extensions.

some zoomers aswell, they are just as bad with anything that is not mainstream easy UI shit. i use various software too scrape sites for content. made a thread just know with some quick tips too get started if you wanna check out.
 
I got 4tb of storage for my xbox because I know that games take up a lot of space so I want to make sure that I always have extra space
 
I have lots of porn (not sure exactly how much, I guess 20-40 TB) and also many "normal movies" for which I need storage.

I also downloaded an old dump of all the reddit comments before the API became inaccessible, that alone is a few TBs
 
Retards buy every game on steam and need to store it
 
That’s hardly enough for 13 Black Ops 6 games. It really depends on what you're into. If you just browse the internet and game occasionally, even 512GB should do the trick. But for others, even 4TB might feel cramped. I’m with wastedcodeine on this one—putting 4TB on a single drive is risky if it fails. I’d rather go with 2x 2TB drives for almost the same price.

i get a new drive every year and have a zip backup of the old drive on the new and keep filling the new one, saved me once

Oh fuck that's a lot of porn :worryfeels: At least if they start asking for ID to view porn like in Utah you won't have to do it with that collection

There's some sims that require huge amounts of memory like Digital Combat Simulator.
 
porno files are large

It's not _that_ much. Many studio porn files have 2-10 GB if they are higher in resolution. If we assume 4 GB per file then e.g. 32 TB would be only 8000 videos.
 
Anime series and games are now 10-20 tb, zoomers live in the now and don't realize that everything on the internet in temporary and prone to censorship.
 
is a nice side hustle, perfect excuse too save large amount of data for own use. used to sell pirated games at school aswell, when i was young. autism for tech is a blessing at times
 
I have 2 terabytes of hentai doujins, probably millions of images spread over 3 hard drives

where do you sell those, and how?

i found some fuckers on discord that i "befriended". they talked about onlyfans bitches they liked, and how they could not pay for it all. some of the girls i had stored on my drive, showed them some pics and vids. they asked for more, said i had everthing and i could send everthing if they paid a little, said it was for the "cloud" storage subscripton i needed. startet with low prices and increased more after i gained trust, and when they asked for OF with more content.

i just zip the files, especialy if it is lossless file formats, and send them in dms or from goggle cloud burner accounts, google cloud gives you free 15 GB, so just make more accounts without phone numbers

GTA takes up 100GBs
2K takes up 100GBs
Madden takes up 70GBs
Red Dead takes up like 50GBs
my modded install of Assetto Corsa is like 200GBs
My backup of all my phone photos from when i was younger is like 50GBs

Stuff adds up quick

1TB is more than enough if you uninstall games after completing them
Not everyone plays one-and-done story games, a lot of people play games with loads of replayability that they keep going back to
