    HGST has today announced the world’s first 10TB hard disk drive, the Ultrastar Archive Ha10. Aimed at enterprise and active archive operations, this HDD combines HGST’s second generation HelioSeal platform and shingled magnetic recording (SMR) technologies. HGST says that while both technologies succeed in delivering unmatched storage density and power efficiency there are no compromises in reliability and performance predictability.

    Once above 2TB you need to partition.  I wonder if you can access the whole drive, although you would think it would be more efficient in smaller partitions.  Anyone know the optimal size?

    i would be afraid to put that much data on one drive. Unless it was in raid for redundency

    I agree with above statement that that much space worrys me. Also, the read/write speed is probably terrible.

    I wonder if I can fill up the 10TB drive before it fails on me.
