If you ended up calculating 20TB of storage requirements, you would be better with a 4 or 6 bay NAS instead of a 2 bay NAS. An important point to note is that you do not need to fill the NAS with HDD, you can partially fill it and add more HDD in future if they are required. By the end of this step, try to have an idea of how many HDD bays you need in the NAS and how many and of what size, HDD’s you will need.
