Default How big is yours?

How big is your hard drive memory and how much have you used?

Mine's 120 GB and I have used 13%.

As a matter of interest, what's the biggest memory available for a home computer?

Also, do you think that people's hard drives are just too big, that is, they are unlikely to ever reach 100% use?

Newer Advents (what mine was at the time) have half a Terabyte (500,000,000,000 bytes) which is a lot.

I only have a comparitively mieserly 320Gb; which is still near a third. I try to tell myself its all I need.

I thought 30Gb was huge when I got it late 2001. I filled that all the way. I think 320Gb is a lot; probably by late 2005 early 2006 (when I plan to get my new computer) I will have practically filled this one up.

Personaly, I can't see how anyone can fill a 50GB what ever they are using it for.

Mine is a 40 gig, lol...But I buy HDD with a rule of thumb, I predict how much space I'll use, then double it.Why do you ask? All my systems run best when half the space is used(50%)maximum.I don't actually fill my HDD!

I've used about 39% of my HDD by the way...

What a load of Pessimistic people you all are! Optomism! OPTOMISM!!

Eitherway; if I needed to back things up then I would buy another backup hard drive. I've already used up 60Gb before.
