Just think when computers first came out they had a mere 1gb hard drive. We managed then. Then they grew to 5gb, 10gb, 20gb..When someone had a 20gb hard drive we were in awe….WOW….Well now look at us…80gb is just on the verge of being ok, and 500gb is the average now. There's your answer... Have storage space, will fill... I know I have collected an amazing amount of data over the years and I think that even more things will be stored digitally soon.. The thing is they are also making file sizes smaller. LOLI would love to get hold of a few of those discs so I can throw all the extras I have away. Yes I still have discs even though I have nearly 2 terabytes of working hard drive space in my house.
