Western Digital has just announced their new 12TB hard drive, once again taking the "we've got the biggest hard drive" crown again. Rumor has it Seagate is working on their 16TB drive that will be hitting markets next year but until then if you need more capacity in a single drive, Western Digital has you covered.
