Default Hard Drive Junk

hey, how much hard drive space do u have in all? how much have you taken up and with what kinds of files? i have 5 hard drives in all: 80 gigs, 60 gigs, 40 gigs, 4 gigs, 250 gigs: 434 gigs in all. i've got about 30 to 40 gigs taken up by music, like 10 to 15 of videos and the rest is either free or taken by my personal files (like 30 to 40 gigs). plus i have everything backed up except music and videos (cuz they can be replaced unlike my personal stuff). so basically out of 434 i have roughly 100 taken up. i got lots left! anyway, post some of your hd info!

I've got a 120GB drive partitioned into 3 sections for family members. Asks which to boot at startup:

37.2 GB each, 26.6 gig left on mine... but its failing again, so will have 120GB again when I get a new drive

I've not checked the space on my main comp recently, but I have an 80G in there and probably have used about 10G or so... My laptop has a 20G and I've used 2.56 And no, it's not an old machine, I'm just very conservative :P

I have a server that I keep my extra programs and some videos... I think I have about 20G used on there...

When I'm seeking for a movie, I load up my PC of about 150 movies to bait a P2P user to come up for a trade.
A good practice is to leave your hard disks with at least 20% free space.
