When dabbling in the world of storage, it’s sometimes hard to fathom how much a megabyte or gigabyte really adds up. You buy a new drive that’s say, 1TB, and you think “this should hold a lot” and it does. But before you know it, it fills up fast.

But how much stuff does a drive really hold?  We’ve posted statistics in the past about how many songs or movies a drive can hold, but sometimes your mind wanders and you want to know how storage plays into the “real world”.

Take a look at this infographic courtesy of Information is Beautiful that breaks down storage capacity in a really interesting, creative way.  And if you love infographics especially, those with an artistic slant, you’ll definitely want to check this site out. Bravo, guys!
