Most of those are in .SID format, hence the low file size for the amount of files.

None. Everything on the Ipod, so when it crash I'm f*cked up.

I have just under 40gb.. never listen to any of it though, most is years old!

I've got a 120gb partition full of music, but it's full because most of the files are FLAC.

60.5 GB, and not likely to fluctuate much since I started using Spotify.

I've only got about 16,500 tracks of this indexed in iTunes, and 9,856 tracks on my iPod Classic 160GB. I really need to delete some of the stuff I'm unlikely to ever listen to again.

Just over 20gb I had more but the hard drive in my old laptop failed and I lost it all.

We have a 2TB NAS that holds all the digital music for the household. Most of that is taken up by huge flac files of Grateful Dead shows. I'd guess about 80gigs of non Dead, regular MP3 albums and such.

Update: I have over 100,000 songs right now (37 GB).
pretty sure those arent audio files

They are, but they are different compared to formats like MP3 or WAV. Most of those were in formats such as MOD, XM, IT, and SID. The first three formats are similar to MID (MIDI). They contain info about stuff like notes and tempo, but they also contain additional PCM samples that act as instruments (plus other data). File size is greatly reduced by making music this way and you can play those files with a player such as VLC (though not very accurately).
The last format I mentioned (SID), is a C64 format that can be played with plugins for players such as Winamp or foobar2000 (or natively on a C64 for authentic sound), and it doesn't usually contain any sample data. It's very similar to MIDI music except that it is designed to be played on particular sound device (the SID chip, which can be emulated with the plugins I mentioned, on PC).
Edit: To illustrate the difference better, conventional formats such as MP3, WAV, or FLAC are sample data only (plus some tags about artist, title, etc). This is basically analogous to audio tapes, but in digital format. The formats I had on my hard drive are structured differently. Instead of recording the whole song, the first three formats I mentioned only have recordings\samples of the instruments required to play the song, and the data associated with notes, tempo, etc.
