How Much DATA will SD Card Hold
#1
Based on my first week of use on new AirCurve 10 ASV the SD card has 25.8MB data used and it is a (4GB) 3.69GB card. It occurs to me it will go for about 2-1/2 years before getting filled up.

Anyone want to confirm or dispute my calculations?

After 13 continuous months of use, my 2 GB card still has 1.8 GB of free space.  At this rate, it could go several more years.

Yeah, the data doesn't seem to take up much space on those cards. I was curious because after the newness wears off I'm not going to want to download the data everyday.  Oh-jeez

Isn't is amazing how much data can be stored in such a small space? I just looked it up, and in 1981 (not so long ago at all!) you could get a 5 MB, yes, I said megabyte, hard drive for $3,500.00!! In 1980 IBM came out with the first gigabyte hard drive, which was $40,000.00, was the size of a refrigerator, and weighed 550 lbs! Crazy, eh?

The card may wear out before it ever fills up with data.

I am on a second card, because the first one cracked on the side, but all hours
were transferred to second card.

884 days, card reads 90% free space. 2GB

Laugh-a-lot when I read that, it's so true. Much more likely to lose it or drop it in the bowl than fill it up lol.

It appears that Respironics machines are miserly in their data storage. My Resmed AirSense Autoset filled its original 2GB card to about 75% in about 18 months. I'm on my second card, an 8GB card which should last quite a while.
