    I've zero interest in dotting additional boxes around the house, so my main computer also houses my entire media library and everything's streamed from it to everywhere else. Currently I have about 46TBs of storage, which is almost full and therefore soon to become 80+TB. All courtesy of Seagate's Archive drives.

    128GB SSD for Windows, 1 TB for general, 3 TB for emulation "files" and related dev tools, and 1 TB drive for Steam/Origin. So 5 1/8 TB roughly.

    128 Gb SSD and 1TB hard disk. Looking at upgrading main computer later this year and seriously considering reducing as everything else can go on NAS

    Re: QOTW: How much storage do you have inside your main PC?

    256GB SSD for Windows and programs, 500GB SSD for games I play regularly and 2TB hybrid for general storage and lesser used games.

    Its actually more space than a few years ago, but far less drives. I used to run RAID1 internally on storage drives but now that my external storage protects against drive failure, I decided to downsize.

    My external NAS storage has recently increased from 4 x 2TB zRAID (usable 6TBish) to a mixture of drives in unRAID totalling 10TB. It will probably also get increased again soon by replacing an older drive with a new 4TB to keep me plodding along a few years.

    Only 840 EVO + 850 EVO (2x250GB) in RAID 0.
    Everything else is in NAS machines on a gigabit network.

    250GB SSD for windows, 512GB, 480GB, 256GB and 240GB SSD's for games. 2TB HDD for main storage. Just upgrading to X99 and adding a 256GB PCI-E M2 SSD for windows. Also thinking of upgrading my 240GB SSD to a 960GB SSD to give me more space for games.

    I have 500Gb in my main PC. This is down from 4Tb on the old pc. My old PC is still in service though so no need to add the extra storage.

    1x 240Gb SSD (Will get another soon). 2x 640Gb HDs in Raid 0. Had them ages. 2Tb external for back up. I'm always astounded at people who have terabytes and terabytes of space and fill it? What with?

    Re: QOTW: How much storage do you have inside your main PC?

    500GB more since adding an SSD, mainly because it is impossible to take away part of a 2TB HDD when you add an SSD. It will never be empty if only because of local copies of my onedrive account and a local dev folder (backed up to a subversion server) because the project I am working on requires this to be on the C drive.
