How Many Movies can 2TB Hold?

We already know 2 TB is a lot of storage space and most people don’t have movie collections that big that will have them running out space. With that said, the amount of movies you can fit on a 2 Terabyte hard drive depends on many different factors. This could be from the quality of the movie, length, if it is SD or HD etc…

To give you some idea, we used the average movie size and did some rough calculations and the end result is that you will get a general idea into the storage capacity of a 2 TB drive.
Movie Sizes used:

  • SD Movie from iTunes = 1.5GB (Average Size)
  • 720p Movie from iTunes = 4GB (Average Size)
  • 1080p Movie from iTunes = 5GB (Average Size)
  • DVD Rip (Pirated) = 700MB (Average Size)*
  • Blue Ray Rip 720p (Pirated) = 1GB (Average Size)*
  • Blue Ray Rip 1080p (Pirated) = 3.5GB (Average Size)*
