I have some files that are larger than a gigabyte per file. In fact one of them is more than 140 gigabytes.
But wait, there's more . . .
I will need almost one terabyte if I reach my goal of one million free kindle books (as of today I only have 240,000). For Abdul: how many cd-roms will that require to backup?
The folder with 240,000 thumbnail cover images for those kindle books is over 10 gigabytes.
The database file (an xml file downloaded from amazon) for my collection of 240,000 free kindle books is currently 120 megabytes (author, publisher, asin, purchase date). Not to mention the folder of email invoices from amazon, one for each free book I bought.
And that's just one of my hobbies.
