woo, that ones going to take a little while. you should get into a routine, once a week or two. it goes by much faster if you shorten the interval between defrags. takes mine less than 5 minutes.

Ever heard of video editing? It tends to spit out very big files.. you should see my main computer (this is my laptop) which is currently using 700gb of space.


Then he must have 20 hours of edited video and 700GB *faints*




if you're doing video editing at a professional level, each frame of an NTSC (720x480) video would take up 1 MB. so each second would take 30 MB. Each minute would be a 1.8GB of files. 37 gigabytes would give you 20 minutes and 30 seconds of video. 700Gb would give you a mere 388 minutes, or 6.48 hours. If you're someone in the industry, hard drives will be sitting on your shelves like books.

Now that's for standard definition stuff. Imagine these folks doing video editing for high-definition stuff. Each frame is 5.93Mb, we'll call that 6Mb for calculating purposes. Each second is 180Mb, each minute is 10.8Gb, and each hour is 648Gb. a Movie then would be about 1.296 terabytes if it were exactly 2 hours.

Factor in video preroll and effects, as well as anything that's not particularly straight video footage, and you've got yourself easily a 2 or 3 Terabyte project.
