Apparently, this part of the data takes up very little room.

I was listening to a podcast[1] in which the speaker, Viktor 
Mayer-Schonberger described the effect Google has on our ability to 
forget.  As an aside, he describes some of Google's infrastructure and 
the estimated size of the database.  I forget the exact size, but it's 
something I could store on a home media centre.
