I've got a 180 gig drive and an 80 gig drive installed. During the year, there have been times when I've had as little as 37 megs left - that right 37 Mb. I capture video, which is huge before compression.

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?
Don't you mean "size in Gigabytes"?
Mine is 40 and i've used 50 %
160 gb is a joke.

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

I don't know about you; but if I understood that properly you were saying that Either should be Iether? Don't kow how you do it in Canada!

Its mainly the DVD Movies I download (hence 1Mbps Broadband); which probably answers the other question?

Currently I am running dual 40GB in a RAID system for a total of 80GB. Current usage is ~50GB.

Biggest space hogs are Games (Unreal 2004 is 6GB by itself), music (I have ALL of my CDs on my computer. That way I can play them over my Tivo. It's great to have friends over, talk about a song and BOOM I am playing it within 5 seconds...now that's cool) and pictures (ever since the new software for Tivo came out my wife has our entire photographic life history in folders that we can view on our Tivo...another very cool item).

RAID is great. Especially when I get bigger drives because it has a instant copy utility that copies everything to the new drive with no mess.

I had a 60 gig hard disk and i thought that was big, until i decided to upload some video from my digital video camera, and within a few minutes, it was full enough that the computer would just about crash no matter what i did.

Yeah; capturing Video is a dreadful thing whatever size Hard Drive you have - it can quickly get out of hand.

How come you have such little memory for an pretty cool machine? The more memory the more efficient the machine is.

Its just how it comes from where I brought it. It will do me until the Longhorn Beta comes out at which point I'll probably put it up to 2Gb.
