LEWISVILLE, Texas (AP) - Archivists responsible for putting
together former President George W. Bush's presidential library are
tasked with processing 80 terabytes of electronic information.
That's 20 times more than the Clinton administration's four
terabytes.


Bush's electronic archives contain more than 200 million
e-mails, compared to about 20 million in former President Bill
Clinton's.


Bush's archives also include share drives, hard drives,
scheduling systems and digital photography.

The average size of a quality digital photo is about three megabytes, meaning just one
terabyte can store more than 300,000 such pictures.


Alan Lowe is director of Bush's presidential library and museum.
 

He says Bush administration e-mails alone would take up an
estimated 600 million printed pages.
