Newegg is showing a "WD Elements 10TB USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive". This is the first time I've seen a drive of that size. Is it wise to have that much data on one drive?

Why not? The drive's size doesn't reflect the security of the data it contains! Nothing can substitute a reliable backup plan.

As stated, never keep all your eggs in one basket. Sure, fill the 10GB drive up, but be sure you have backups to other drives or cloud services in case that one fails.
