comment How are sites like Pinterest able to hold all those pictures?
One thing that a site like Pinterest can obviously do is deduplication: store each image only once, no matter on how many people's pages it appears.

comment Why is the file deleted not actually deleted from the hard drive?
"Unlinking the file takes a constant amount of time regardless of file size" - whether that is true depends on the data structures used to manage free space. Many older filesystems use a block bitmap, where freeing space takes time proportional to the file size.
