My D800 (not E) raw files average around 40 MB each. According to a Google query, there are 1,048,576 MB in a Terabyte. So 1,048,576 / 40 = about 26,000 files.

That sounds low to me. Anyone care to correct my math?

Depends on how you look at it:

At an average price of US 75 dollars for a 1TB HDD the cost of photo storage is:

75/26000 = 0,0029 cents per stored photo or 0,0058 if you have a backup system available (highly recommended indeed).
