When Blu-Rays become more common place, they are 25 GB (single layer) or 50 GB (dual layer). For 20 dual layer high definition video Blu-Ray shows, that's 1 TB of magnetic storage needed. One Terrabyte is probably enough to store one band's entire circulating catalog (or the catalogs of several small bands that didn't do a lot of touring) @ 16/44.1 FLAC. But when you get into 24/96 audio, DVD video, and esp. high definition video 1 TB will be spent quickly. Here is an interesting article about a scientist who is developing 50 TB DVDs, which they claim can make hard disks obsolete:

im calling bullshit on that story / Reeks of snake oil.. and ultra poor seek-time.
DVD and CD seek times are: 130ms and. 110ms (respectively).
Hard drives = 8ms (average)
Neat story - not buying it.
memory looks to replace hard drives.

Yeah, I guess the main drive (C:\) will always need to be fast seeking, but for an archival media, 50,000 gigs is pretty cool (and staggering).

Everything fails at some point.

I store all my recordings on HDD and DVD's. If 1 fails, you have the other to fall back on. Its very unlikely (and very unlucky) that both will fail at the same time.

I do the same with my own recordings and I do one more thing I distribute them to a massively redundant network using bitttorrent and sites like this
