I’m writing this blog on my older laptop because my newer laptop is in the shop, so to speak. I had stopped using the older laptop for everyday work (and got the newer, which was new when the company bought it less than a year ago) because it had gotten completely bogged down.
When you have more than 600 titles, you have a ton of files. And some of those files (like the photo and design files) are huge. And let’s not even consider the size of the video files.
As a result, the entire WMG digital inventory takes up more than a quarter terabyte. As in 275GB or 2,750MB or 2,750,000K.
Remember when 64 to 100MB storage seemed like a huge amount of storage space? I do. Now, I have individual files that big.
And that adds up. But that was only part of the problem.
Because all of my advanced computer programs need a lot of RAM to run. That combination of factors rendered my older laptop more or less useless.
