A bunch of stuff, it all accumulates. In my case:


  • Movies and TV series (I have ripped all my DVDs, digitised all my VHS from way back, recorded quite a bit off Sky)
  • Quite a bit of video footage I have shot myself of family weddings etc
  • Photographs, I have had digital cameras since the 90s and have pretty much kept everything
  • Music, I have ripped a large CD collection for streaming
  • Backups, with my desktop and laptop boot drives and data directories etc all imaged to the NAS
  • Emulation files (MAME etc)
  • Redundancy (two drives, amounting to 12TB, will be RAID parity drives to allow for drive failures)
  • Offsite backup of other family members stuff (word files, digital photos, scanned photos etc)
It all adds up. Allow headroom for future growth, and with all this stuff a large array doesn't seem that silly.
