Helium-Filled 10TB Hard Drive Announced
Western Digital’s HGST have announced the world’s first 10-terabyte hard drive and it’s helium-filled to boot. The Ultrastar He10, comes just a couple of weeks after Seagate announced the initial availability of their 8TB air-filled hard drive. The company has failed to disclose any pricing structure as yet but Western Digital have said that the 10TB drive will have the lowest cost-per-gigabyte and power consumption-per-gigabyte of any HDD drive that is currently available on the market.
In a recent press release, WD’s HGST announced a load of new products and initiatives. Here we will take a peak into the top three.

"The Vengeance Formulation" :-)

Still waiting for pricing info and availability. Guessing it would be USD 400 - 430.
The 6 TB costs USD 270.

You gotta feel for Seagate. They must have had a huge portion of their labor force working on their fabulous new 8TB drive for many years and they were so excited and so happy to announce it was finally ready. They must have had visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads.

So, they go ahead and announce their new big deal and a few days later WD ups them with a 10TB drive. There must have been one whole Hell of a lot of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth over at Seagate. You just gotta feel sorry for those poor guys.

But it is funny as Hell. Isn't it?

8 MB RAM and 1 GB hard disk. This if I recall right was what I worked on first. A Win 3.0 I think.
Had to beg for the extra 4 MB RAM, bcos an application was crawling slow. We would also constantly delete and zip files to create more space. Sometimes "buying" space on another's machine in return for favours. What luxury nowadays and yet it seems insufficient as it had then. :-)

From a cursory study it appears Hitachi drives are the most reliable. Wonder if there'll be any news from them.
I've used Seagate and WD external drives. Touch wood, no problems till date, although WD is quieter and cooler.

Sandisk has recently announced 512 GB SD card. The price is hefty and it is of course flash memory. But compare that to the relatively hefty WD passport for example. What will it be like 10 years from now !

A document on uefi.org states, GPT partitions can support very large partitions. Hope I will not have to upgrade my puny 32 bit Win 7 Home PC running Dual Core. Any ideas ?

Touch wood is the expression i've heard since I understood English Big Grin.

Apparently it is the British version of the American 'Knock on wood', which I learnt later.
Now stay on topic :-)

Edit: I don't think it was 1 GB as I'd mentioned in the earlier post. Just a paltry 350 MB. Glorious days. Running defrag all the time.
