How do y'all fill-up these drives? I've got a mere 10GB of data in My Documents and about 15 programs installed.

And that's with a dual-boot config with XP Home and Ubuntu Linux 5.04, and i still had around 10GB free space in total, on a 40GB drive!

Well, I can't basically. I can use MAX 25GB/400GB Also, remember that these drives contained bad sectors that I repaired by a forced full format

lol, so why upgrade more space rather than speed?

And are you trying to say that you backup data to your other drive when you format?

Yeah, but how would you fill it up? I could never fill-up a 240GB drive, even if i created replicas of my files and used 3 different operating systems.

Surely it slows your PC down, having so much space.
