I'm pretty sure you can rip one down to a couple of gigs.

Well sure,If you want them ripped in say Divx then yeah,it would come out in a few gigs,but if you had 2tb of room,i dont think you would be ripping with divx

Do you really use all of the files you have? Out of the 300gb of movies that you have do you actually watch them all or do you just collect them to have them?

I ask because I maybe have 300gb worth of stuff on multiple different drives, but I know a lot of it is stuff I could probably delete.

Just curious.

I remember when laptops first came out. My parents bought a $4000 one with about 16k of RAM, haha. It was the "latest and greatest piece of technology available that will be able to support programs 10 years from now." Next time, I'm going to write up a contract.
