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.

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.

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. :D

... and these words came out of my mouth in 1986 while working as a computer specialist for Radio Shack.

"You will NEVER fill up a 10MB Hard Drive"

I still remember my old Seagate 65MB drive that I booted Windows 3.11 off of. May he rest in pieces.
