A major flaw with filling large drives with photos and videos, is that most home users who do this have no BACK-UP! It is a very bad habbit.

Most would be better off just burning their media straight to CD, DVD or whatever. Perhaps making two copies, one for use and the other for safe storage.

A hard disk should been seen as your workspace, i.e. for applications and files which you need to use "today". They are no good for use as an archive, given that they are mechanical and will wear out and breakdown.
