Forget the MP amount, what I want to know is what drive is that and where can I get one? It’s from 2006 so the prices have to gone down by now…
It’s a HDD who’s disks are made from crystallized unicorn blood.
14 Petabytes? Damn.
Wait! 14 Exabytes. O_O
12.75 Petabytes actually. Divide it by 1024 four times. 14PB is the (inaccurate) value obtained when one assumes units are round 1000s instead of 1024.
Also, the size is shown in explorer’s taskbar since he has it selected. I wouldn’t try opening it either, since that looks to be on a network drive (W:) and 12PB won’t transfer very fast…
If this were real, I’d be curious as to what OS the server has (likely some linux variant) and how many HDDs are in the RAID holding this file.
I have had software give me weird number before. The photo is from my own computer. Software can act odd at times…
