Just slapped another harddrive into my desktop at home cuz I was down to 24gb of storage on my data drive.

I have a 320gb drive split into 3 partitions, one for XP, one for Vista, and one for data storage. plus I have an older 80gb IDE drive for backups.

Just put in a 500gb SATA drive. A little quick math...that's 900gb, or .9 terabytes of disk space.

sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

but Now i'm feeling like I need another 101 gigs just so I can say I actually have a terabyte at home on 1 computer.

*laugh* Yeah, If I got that close I'd feel the same. I've just got the measly .25 terabyte.

I mean, you've gone that far, I think you need to go for the full TB.

Now if you had .9 TB of memory, I'd be that much more impressed.

I am just over a terabyte at this point, and it seems like I always cleaning up stuff and looking for more space. My next step will be to set up a Network Attatached Storage device, with about 2tb and move as much as possible over to it.

I've got 15GB on my Linux system and 10GB on the laptop. I think the NT box has 40. Since I'm on Hughes.net, I can't stream video anyway. My business partner, who does video work, has had a TB on her Mac for a few years. We'll probably be buying a Hammer soon.

Are you implying that 5 macintoshes (plus the wife's work PC) is more than is required for a a household of 2 people?

Let's see... Odin (file server) has 500 gb, but will have 1.5 tb within 30 days (hard drive order coming up soon)
Duolith (my desktop) has 250gb
Appletree (G3 tower) has 80gb
and then 2 externals, a 320gb and a 250gb
OH and the MacBook with 120gb
That's 2.52tb now, 3.52tb within a month.
