    I'm a FLAC snob, and I've got widely varying tastes.

    I consider myself to be primarily a rock/soul fan, though.

    I was shocked when I discovered the two composers who occupied most of my hard drive space:

    1) Ludwig van Beethoven (30 GB)

    2) Duke Ellington (20 GB)

    I love both of the above, but is anyone else surprised by the amount of space they've devoted to certain composers/artists?

    At the moment BACH 2000 is --It's friggin HUGE -- every piece he ever wrote

    Re: current people, probably the Beatles -- I have every album and bootleg and variation (plus all their solo discographies) -- that has to be 20 GB alone

    4tb's of bluray mkv rips and 600 gigs worth of mp3's

    meanwhile,hard drive prices will stay high for 2 more years because of the flooding in thailand wiped all the parts out.

    2 tb drives were as low as $59 here........not any more.

    Cheap Trick takes up the most of mine but its only 1.2 GB. I have practically every song they ever recorded. I have no idea how one can have 15 GB of even a prolific artist with a long career, I have every Beatles album and a bunch of singles, B-sides and rarities on my comp and that takes up a bit less than 1 GB
