So here is a random poll. Figured I'd ask, because I'm a recipient of most of these!

If I may ask, what is the point of this Survey? I checked off two that apply to me. I don't understand the point.

Great question Rodger. Peer to peer community building. Establishing patterns of commonality. Building repore and  generating interest in response to further our hobby/commercial practices. And it's fun to see how we all have similar traits.

I've been accumulating a log of 25 MB .DNG raw picture files, I should really turn that setting off so it just captures the JPEG.  I use a 64 gb SD card.

I fill my stock DJI provided 16 gb SD card with footage, forget to scrub it, go flying, hit record and fail. Oh the irony! BUT my desktop is littered with folders that need to get dumped on my external HDD to free up resources. Think I am a digital hoarder.

I just stockpile most of my footage.  When I've got enough I'll cut the best bits out & join them all together to make a 2-3 minute video of lots of interesting views.

It beats showing people 15 minutes of your back yard.  You'd end up like one of those people who used to go round their relatives houses in the 70's giving slide shows of their holiday snaps that no-one's interested in.  Eventually everyone would become too busy to invite you round.

Yes. You are the EXTREME digital hoarder! Can I ask what you have? That had to have cost as much as your drone.

I can't imagine 20TB, I keep triplicates of everything and 20TB can't be cheap. I'm about to invest in another 6 TB, so I can't complain to much.

I've a lot of footage accumulating that needs editing, but maybe also a lot of them will never be edited...
In one year I've accumulated more than 1TB of pictures and videos on my NAS.

I've accidently done #2 several times now while my SD card is happily doing nothing in my PC.  I've stopped taking the SD card out and use a USB to move files and this seems to have fixed my problem

It's funny that we still refer to the video as "footage".  That is an ancient term referring to the days when we actually had rolls of film to shoot.  You could actually touch it.  What would be a better term?  Video Digital Library?  Digital video collection?  Cloud video?  Pixel collection?  Who knows.  Probably should just leave things alone and stick with "Footage".

Just bought another 8TB USB external drive, was $180 on Amazon which makes me have about 60TB of storage total now. I've been a photographer for a long time, besides the drone and 'normal' stuff, I take a lot of infrared because it's cool. I keep 2 copies of everything and can't bring myself to delete anything. I reckon that makes me a hoarder.

I have a 1tb internal drive that is just for drone video.  I always play the files as soon as I get them home.  If there is nothing interesting, I generally delete.  As was pointed out, you can only have so much video of the yard, even if it is a 150 acre yard.  And since I often  have one of the drones with me, I record a lot of imagery, much of which is useless or uninteresting.  Useless, because I stupidly forget to set the camera up correctly, ie: exposure terrible or whatever, or because on playback , what I thought was awesome was actually nothing special or I was yawing too fast or tilting too fast or going too fast or just fubar'd in some way.  
Mostly, when I think I have a good one, someone on here posts a video that  is so amazing it makes me want to wipe all my stuff out of  shame.  

BTW, I believe you meant "rapport".

+1 If I glean 5% of footage or stills it is probably an overstatement for precisely the reasons you have stated.
