Do you have 285GB or megabytes (MB) left?

That is plenty. Why are you worried about running out?

Each (recent) game usually takes up 5-10gbs, and older games take up a lot less.

Don't even bother. As long as you have about 15% free space you're fine.

I dont get it why people are worried about having used X mount of disk space, when they have like 100X left :P
