Bah HDD space is over-rated, i won't say wot i have so as to not put ppl to shame ;) hehe, nah the more u have the more u fill it up, the hotter ya PC Case is, and the more noise it makes...

i'd take my 8Gb Quantum back anyday if only it'd compress to 1Tb...

60GB at the moment. I have an IBM 60GXP with 40GB for normal use and a little older Western Digital 20GB unit I use for fresh installs of Windows for the purpose of benchmarking components. :)

:D My current sweatheart has 2x20g Ibm 60gxp's in rd0 + an old Seagate 1.2 in Ghost for a recovery disc. Love It!

My old buddy, just replaced- 20g Maxtor + 6.8g Bigfoot (own two of them, probly the best hds I've ever owned)

My Bubba Box- 16.8g Seagate

My office box- 10g Maxtor + 6.8g Bigfoot (Boowho, she's showing signs of the end of the trail coming soon)

I think last spring'sexperiment of putting the Bigfoots in Rd0, wounded one of them. But, I can't complain they have run & run & run.........In raid they were bench'n out at 9.8 ms, which is pretty dam close to the Maxtor's. Hehehehe, good on Q :thumb: .

For anyone, this side of the big water, watch www.NewEgg.com ,
on their rehab site. Their refurb'd Hd's are really cheap......the 16.8g seagate was on sale for $45 w/shp'g. 66 ata/7200....hey great kid's drive or spare or backup or what ever at that price.
But ya gotta watch the site several times aday, and grab one asap.......they go really quick. Check'm between 4-5pm pst. Their in stock any where from 10 minutes to an hour.


I guess about 100g or alittle less.......today........over in the near future. :D Always :hammer: on something.......:D

Don't you love it when just one of those drive fails and you lose the lot... ! ...

160GB in this machine 2 X 60 5400(WD)& 1X 40 7200(IBM 60GXP)

Plus another 80GB odd on the network here... it's just not enough... on my 14day limit free trial of optus here, filled the 2 60GB drives in just over a week.... ;) Now backing it all up on CD, there's fun...

I've got a 15.3GB Western Digital Caviar 7200RPM, 2 x 6.4GB Quantum 5400RPM drives in RAID-0 and a 2.0GB Western Digital Caviar 5200RPM - I need more space :cry: :cry: :cry:

Good ole New Egg, got a 12g bigfoot for $30 usd, and just missed a Fugi 60g for $40usd.......so I'm over 100g & have another Bigfoot for the office baby. That just leaves a 60g for movies (I see what ya mean W, on the movies) and a 10g to replace the 1.2 on the new sweatheart for a recovery disc and critical file storage. For me that should be enough overkill to keep me out of mischief.........somewhere around 180g is the goal.
