In addition to being a technology guru, I'm a photographer, and I was reading a post here
that struck a chord.
Essentially, I, too, can't keep up with digital photography files that keep crowding my hard drive. I probably have in the neighborhood of 1 terabyte of photos at this time, and that's before I take into consideration backups.
What are you doing? Are NAS storage devices a reasonable solution for individuals? I've long since run out of space in my main PC to add hard drives. Hard drives keep getting bigger, but they're not growing fast enough, in my opinion.
