    Double poll here. There are two questions:

    • How much DATA do you have Oo-line?

      This is data and not total capacity. This includes all your on-line data: music, images, video, the OS, all of it. It doesn't include back-up data even if it's on-line like Time Machine tho. Just active data.​
    • And of the on-line storage devices used for that DATA totally, what % are they filled to?

      For example if you had two 500 GB drives and about 400 GB of data you would answer:​
    "I have < 500 GB of DATA on-line." and,
    "My on-line storage is between 25% and 50% full.".

    Hmm... When you say "on-line", do you mean on a remote server (hosted away from home i.e. hosting company, co-located box etc) or on a locally accessible TM/NAS/Home network/home server??

    Anything on any of the busses in your Mac Pro or Hackintosh. Not shared DATA unless you're the only user and just happen to be using NAS or something. So if you're a SOHO and share a NAS with 3 other people then no. Or if you're thinking about your corporate server at work and wanna profile that file-server then no.

    I guess I should have specified single user and local. Sorry about that. :eek:

    Local meaning that you can see the enclosure from your computer chair or home theater couch. :)

    I have recently gone over 1TB. I have 2TB total. Most of the data is ISO files of all my software. Does that count?

    4 TB in the mac pro, about 2tb free, but shrinking quickly due to music and movies.

    Externally 1.5tb with about 500gb free. Backups of important work.
