2x 600GB Internal
1x 2,0TB External (RAID1)
1x 500GB External

Using about 20% of it, so its kind of wasted :P

Total space

2 - 160 gig SATA drives
1 - 80 gig IDE drive
1 - 320 gig passport drive
1 - terabyte drive <--- this is a USB external drive that my wife and I share. Its connected to her computer, and networked so I we both have our own folders on it. With the way things are going, I will probably get my own terabyte drive just for my computer.

My wife and I do a lot of digital photography. One of my 160 gigs drives is almost full of nothing but pictures and home videos. I might go out on a hiking or camping trip and take 4 - 6 gigs of pictures and videos in a single day. So between my wife and I we use a lot of storage space.

Some people, myself included, have an archiving habit. I archive literally everything. I archive previous OS installations, documents, music, pictures, game saves, program settings etc. It soon builds up in size

Altogether, I currently have about 2 terabytes. I need 3 or 4 more to archive my movies.

I remember when I got my first hard drive and thought "How am I ever going to fill up 20 megabytes with stuff?" Of course then your operating system can on a 1.44 MB floppy and you didn't need to install applications.

Not all on a single disk, or even the same computer, but I probably have about 1TB in my house, most of it network resources.

500 GB for Mac OS X, 500 GB for Windows 7, and 2x 1 TB WD hard drives. Also have a WD MyBook external drive, but that's only used for Time Machine to create backups. So 3 TB of disk space

For my p0rn collection. I'm adding another 10TB for archiving the internet, I have the same bad habits as Dean. >)

Outside of the desktop I have 1TB of HDD space on the Nintendo Wii, 120gigs + 1TB for the Xbox 360, and lots of old HDDs lying around the house that are currently not in use.
