How much storage are you folks using on your DNR 202L?

How much storage are your folks using? Do you run your cams 24x7?

With 32 gig, I'm getting 2-3 days worth of recorded events. I guess it depends on how active is your cams if you have enabled the motion detection feature.

3TB , 24x7.  4 cams, 1 1080p, 3 720p.
looks like it will be pretty close to 4 weeks before it wraps based on what I'm recording (the images are pretty static the images).

I'm in the middle of my 9th day of 24x7 recording and have used 882 GB. IMO its actually not necessary to have a huge drive unless you don't have time to review for suspicious activity everyday. I think 500GB to 1TB is enough for 24x7 recording.

3TB wd ultra passport was only $119 on sale this past summer. Way cheap.

Never know what might have happened previously depending on your situation... could get someone casing the area until something happens...

That's a great point regarding the casing.
