30 or even 60 Terabytes Hard Drives in Stores Near You... Within the Next Decade

Seagate's  Heat-assisted Magnetic Recording Hard Drive Later this Decade

Seagate announced in its recent press-release that they've developed the technology that allows them to pack 1 terabit (1 trillion bits) per square inch which will bring the capacity of the hard drives to a whooping 60 terabytes for 3.5 and 20 terabytes for 2.5 laptop models. There is a catch, this technology is new and it will take them nearly 10 years to bring such capacities to the market. Meanwhile, we are expected to see the current maximum of 3 Terabytes increase to at least 6 within the next couple of years. Bigger capacity harddrives — yeah! Still have a high propensity to fail — nay… Still this is a great news!

The larger will be the drive, the more rubbish files annoying you will appear on your PC. What do we need that progress for?

Look at bthe bright side of the things: the more space there'll be on our hard drives, the more files you need will appear on your PC.

And more pictures reminding you of your brilliant past, and more movies you're keen on, and more music you're crazy about and more projects you're proud of, and so on :)
