How's your hard drive doing?

134 posts in this topic

Well, how's yur hard drive doing? :)

I got two hard drives:

an internal one of 150 gigabyte, divided into two partitions: one for my "multimedia" (games and music) of 50 gigabytes which has 13.4 gigabyte of free space, and one for my windows and stuff i recently downloaded which is 100 gigabytes and has 90.2 giggabytes of free space.

I also got an external hard drive of 750 gigavyte, which i use for my films and series (including anime of cours :) ) which has only 55.8 gigabytes of free space :(

what about yours?

160 GB internal divided into 2 partitions. I try not to put much on them except for stuff site or graphical related. However I got about 40 GB's free on each partition.

Then I got a 1 TB external hard drive, which is down to only about 100 GB's free.

I try to get stuff burned to disc when I can to save space. I got at least 6 or 7 TB's of stuff burnt to dvd discs. Got 2 cases that hold 400+ discs full, got 2 cases that hold 100 full, and 2 cases that hold 48 discs full. Plus I got some in the single cd disc cases, and some in the bundle things that the discs come in when you buy them. =P

My internal HDD is a WD 540Gb its only got 1.55Gb free, i keep all the stuff that i've downloaded (TV, Anime etc) that i haven't watched yet and am going to watch on there then when i've finished watching it i burn the series to DVD-R's then move it to my external. Plus i keep my Dragon Ball collection (46Gb) on there and PC games, Dreamcast Cdi's and other stuff.

I have a 500GB Freecom External that only has about 200mb left on it that is full of music and a 1TB WD My book Exterenal thats got 15.2gb free it's filled with anime, tv show films, etc.

I've just ordered a 1.5TB (Guess what WD Again, lol) WD Elements from amazon a couple of weeks ago (Hasn't arrived yet :( )

I burn all my anime and tv shows to DVD-R except i keep them all on the HDD's as well i'm always worried about damaging the discs and losing stuff, lol.

since my HAF X case has lots of space, I went ahead and put 5 drives in it.

2 SSD- both are OCZ Vertex 2. These 2 are both 200 GB in size so that's 400 GB. My O.S is in one of these. They are small.

The rest are all HDDs.

2 are 2 TB in size, spin at 7200 rpm, and are from W.D and the last one is 600 GB in size, and it's from HP, but it spins at 15k RPM, which is rather impressive but was crazy expensive!!!.

Since my computer is rather new, i've barely filled 100 Gbs.

Oh yeah, after the formatting, all the drives don't reach to their said capacity.

I've only got my measely 250Gb internal since I can't afford an external for the time being, it only has one partition and is down to about 4GB's free, I constantly end up having to replace my big anime files with smaller encodes to save space,

Over my two desktops and 3 laptops, those total around 6tb all of which are nearly full. Then I have a 4 external 2tb's that the last one has about 500gb free, so in total my total capacity is 14tb with 13.5tb full of Anime, Movies, Music, TV Shows, OS's, Programs, My server eating up 5tb >.> , and my other various odd and ends. I should probably look to see what all I actual have xD

Disks are to expensive to buy so I used externals.

Manufacturers always use 1000 Bytes to the Kilo Byte

However everyone else uses 1024 Bytes to the Kilo Byte.

So a 1 TB hard drive has 1000000000000 Bytes which would mean that you have 0.909494701773 TB according to the 1024 standard.

It does make you wonder why they just dont standardize it to the 1024 standard.

But anyways I had 1TB, 70% filled with games and the rest with anime. Now have to grab a few 3TB Hitachis for archival purposes/resizing/remastering etc.
