The amount of storage capacity in a PC is an interesting topic in itself. The rise of the cloud, large-capacity external hard drive and popularity of NAS boxes has, in my opinion, curtailed the need to have lots of drives inside your main PC.

Keeping multiple terabytes close to the motherboard and CPU is no longer as beneficial as it once was, so with that preamble out of the way, this week's QOTW is: how much storage capacity do you have inside your main PC?

As always, you can can join the discussion for free using the comments facility below, and do let us know the split between SSDs and HDDs.

For the record, I have a single 512GB SSD and one 2TB HDD in my main PC.

Main PC:
1x 250GB Samsung 850 SSD - OS and Programs
1x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD - Scratch Disk/Page File (kept from old pc)
2x 1TB Western Digital Blue - Work Asset Storage/Downloads/Backups/Normal Doc storage etc
1x 1.5TB Seagate something or other - Media, ie music and videos, Storage (kept from old pc)

I do kind of need more storage so might be swapping out the 1.5TB for a larger one soon or I may just get another nas instead.
