Please remember that it will be 2,79 TiB per drive, that's 78 TiB
overall. So it's missing 6 TB in reality, depending on how you
calculated the source space you have and backup space you need. In
Multi-TB environments people still are surprised by the big "rounding
error" from harddisk TB to real TiB. And I've had customers who couldn't
even do their first backup, as the backup system was full already. They
calculated backup space only for one backup, and without the TB->TiB
conversion.
