I have just been reading a few threads and without meaning to I realised that so many of the problems/moans/gripes etc etc. seemed to boil down to wanting to keep lots and lots of info. Now I understand photographs & videos take a lot of space for not a lot of substance but. I don't get masses of email storage 1,2,8 years worth or documents(type unknown) again year s worth. Legal stuff, tax stuff excluded what do people want 1TB of storage for? in precise filing systems, with search facilities with GOOGLE like capabilities? Sometimes even regular photo. collections are deemed unusable in one system but wonderful in an-other. At its most prolific my business, all legal stuff stayed at my solicitors, tax stuff with an accountant with what few emails required being kept year on year when each was signed off by the relevant authority. Customer files (5,000 ish) on simple data base. Customer emails in MAIL folders. Images referenced to said data system and stored in one or two BRIDGE readable file blocks. All backed up to a biggish NAS. I think what I am getting at is there did not seem to be a requirement for any specific software product or system to make it all work together without my continuous interference and adjust meant and hassle. Why do so many people find complication where I see none or little?
