    Default How Much Hard Drive Space Are You Using?

    I'm lucky if I use more than 40GB of hard drive space total, so I often think high capacity hard drives are pointless in my systems. I usually buy them anyway because it's cheaper these days to have more than less. How much storage are you actually using?

    I filled up my 500GB drive, so I bought a 1TB WD Caviar Black.

    I've got a 320GB drive with about 100GB free. Time to upgrade.

I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible, and when I leave you will finally understand why storms are named after people.”

    No exageration I have 1 250gb HD, 1 120gb, 1 80gb, 1 60gb and another 120gb all full. My 500gb external hardrive is almost full and my file servers is COMPLETELY full.
    It's like JFK announcing the moon mission. He had no expertise in space travel, and no way of knowing if it would work. He just announced "we're going to the moon" and then they made it happen because everyone was on the same page and working towards the same goal. If he had said "well, let's get some people in space, and we'll see how far out we can get, and if I find someone to make a rocket strong enough, we could possibly approach the moon's orbit and maybe land" it wouldn't have happened.

    At home, I'm probably using about a total of 500 gb.

    At work its a different story.

    1.89tb server with only 14 gb free.

    1.73tb server with only 392 mb free.

    1.40tb server with only 238 gb free

    and a wopping 3.78tb server with only 26.5 gb free.

    This does not include all the projects backed up on massive tape drives.

    I'm currently eating up a newly installed 500 gig drive. I've got a lot of music in .flac form that I've been archiving on DVD due to hard drive constraints, and am putting all that on the 500 gig drive.

    I can see already that 500 gigs won't be enough. There's going to be another newegg purchase in my future lol...

    About 361 gigs, between all my partitions on two drives (250GB and 160GB). I've been getting a 750GB/1TB drive "Real Soon Now" for the last couple months.

    EDIT: And forty-odd gigs used on the laptop.

    Some of the 361 GB is duplicated between my two drives, too.

    The shipping on that alone is the killer.
