I only keep the current year's data online.  The rest is burnt to CD/DVD and stored in a secured location.  Right now, about 10GB actively accessible.

I get 1 terabyte of storage with my Dropbox subscription and only use about a fourth of that. But over time it will increase and I don't have to worry about cleaning it out.

I have an archival process for online data regarding listings and deals. I had a cloud based backup for my computer which I canceled this year due to a lot of backup failures. I need to get another set up.

It keeps on growing.  Some archival methods include storing it on archival sites as well as having your federal government back it up in one of its massive data centers.

I would eyeball the total at about 1T. That breaks down to online backup, several externals and hard drives from every computer used for business in the past 15 years. Some of the backups are redundant but I like it like that.  And they are archived chronologically to correspond with hard files.
