Really easy way to think about this...

assuming 1 TB is 1000 GB, and the card you're shooting on is 32 GB, you will be able to fill the card 31.25 times and store it all on the 1 TB drive.

Fill the card, count the number of files on it, that will be an average number because your files sizes will be all over the place, multiply it by 31.25 to get the number of files that will fit on the hard drive. If your card is not 32 GB, if it is 16 GB for example, the 31.25 cards will be 62.5 cards...

I have 12 TB of external drives, all backed up to an external backup service for $5/month.
