For one or two TB of data that might work, but I have around 8TB.

WOW and I thought I had a lot of photos, a little over a terrabyte.

5.2TB of photos, including more than a few HDR panos that can run 100MB each. The rest is Timemachine backups for three Macs, ripped DVDs (I probably don't need to back these up?), VMs, audio, database snapshots, log files, and miscellaneous other.

Most of the photos are 24Mp raw, I now have a 41Mp camera so I am consuming space at a greater rate than before. I build media storage platforms professionally (and, obviously, as a hobby) so this sort of challenge is welcome
