Jeez, and I thought a 164Gb drive would last me a while....

Installed in late June of this year, this is what my 'Torrent Data' partition now looks like..... time for an external HDD as well, I think.....

Hehe. I went from a 10 GB drive when I started torrenting four years ago to an 80 GB drive about three years ago. Now I have a 160 GB drive and I still struggle to keep room for another show I just NEED to download. So, really, no matter what you have, you always need something bigger.

Same problem here. A 40 GB partition is keeping me very busy.
Guess that a new drive will be way less expensive than therapy.

I'm sure others have much more storage than I do. Frankly, I don't know how you still cope with drives from the 90's

I have a 250gig and a 400 gig drive in my pc. I was always struggling with the 250, especially with a dvd burner , but adding the 400 helped alot! Come on, hard drives are cheap, now you can get a terabyte drive for under $400 I think.

running almost 1.5TB right now internal & externals, thats not even counting the old G4 and pc...and there might be 30-40GB free between them all

i'm with homebrew, externals are so cheap now there's really no reason not to have em...hell, you can get a 500GB lacie porsche usb for under $120 now, & the triple interface d2 is something like $175

Just got a Lacie D2 250 GB w/ USB 2.0, Firewire400 and 2 Firewire800 ports for $135 from www.newegg.com about a month ago. Has a Western Digital drive, and if the drive ever goes bad, the case can be reused. It has about 90 GB free Weird, it doesn't seem to be listed on newegg anymore.
