charles
Badai,

Be carefull not to wipe your files when repartitioning your HD! Use Acronis partition magic or similar, it will not harm your existing data.

charles.

Sometime in the next 2-3 months I will be upgrading my hard drives since these are IDE and getting kind of old (oldest is about 5 years old). I will be getting 4 x 250GB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM SATAII drives. That will give me a total of 1TB of space and about 1.5TB of space if I continue using these IDE drives until they die (though I think I will end up selling most of them).

At work I have a 60GB disk in my laptop, partitioned into 55GB and 5GB.

At home I have two physical disks. The main system one I use for programs and the OS is 80GB and the other I use for all my development work, project work and music is a 120GB SATA disk.

I only got 40gig hard drive in my desktop and I only used 17gig of its space. I think its enough, I don't put so much games in my PC so that's why I can't really maximize my hard drive. Very Happy

littletomi714
I have two hard disk drives. One is an internal Seagate 250 GB, which I splitted up into a 40 GB (for Windows Professional), another 40 GB (for Dual Booting With Windows Home), another 20 GB (for Triple Booting with like 10 Flavors of Linux), and a 120 GB for Storage. Plus I have two 500 GB external hard disk drives for Storage too.
ALostSoul
I have to admit, I have quite a collection of hard drives. I have 2 internal, and 2 external. All of them total about 1000 gigabytes. =]

Cheers ~ Very Happy

Hard Drive on the PC - 360 GB
External Hard Drives - 80+80 = 160 GB
Flash Drive = 4 GB
iPoD = 60 GB

Total = 584 GB and I still dont seem to have enough. Grrrr!!
william
My main computer has a 160 GB hard drive with no partitions. (Yet).

I also have one that has a 40 GB hard drive with two partitions.
Another computer has one 120 GB and an 80 GB.

...and I have some more computers, but most have under 80 GB with one or two partitions.

My hard drives are all filling up rapidly with videos, games, and music. In the future, I plan to get the Seagate 750 GB drive (which I'd fill up in about 16 months). It also wouldn't hurt to get a faster 10000 RPM drive for quick boots.

My D drive is my OS.
I'm going to be buying a new harddrive for making games and stuff.
apexcaliber
Like the original poster I only have an 80 gig hard drive. I find it's more than enough for me. I know the statndard is 100-200 gigs, but I only use around 75% of what I have now.

Though I want to get more into video editing and I'm sure with the programs required or the saved video files I will be needing it more. Some of those raw video files can take up a HUGE amount of space.
G1g4nt1C
I've a notebook and the hard disc capacity is 100 Gb. I also have a extern hard disc with 200 Gb.

1x 500 GB external (100%)

I will have a 1TB RAID5 soon.

My C drive is running on a Western Digital 36GB 10K rpm HDD.
I have another Western Digital 7.2K rpm SATA 80GB HDD partitioned equally for storage. Seems to be enough for general usage since I don't install much software lately and don't do heavy downloads. Wink
zplitstonez
hello everyone,
Good day.

As of now i am using TOSHIBA 80gb,
But it is divided into two partitions,
40gb and 40gb. Because partitioning
your big hard drive, helps a lot....

I have also a 20gb external hard drive,
and a 40gb iPod.

Thank you and may GOD bless us all.
PseudoKnight
I have a 160GB drive and I'm constantly running out of space. However, I know that if I upgrade I'll just fill it up again. Content you "need" to save is proportional to your hard drive space. Wink
rhathar
Two 160 GB Maxtor internal HD, non-RAID. One boots Windows XP, the other Ubuntu.

They're more then I need, but I need two seperate HDs so that Windows and Linux don't fight with eachother. They don't like to share one physical device :p

I have 160 GB. It's enough I think. It is divided into two parts One for data and one for the OS. That one for the OS is 6 GB and it's a bit small I think but I havn't change it becouse I am so lame. Razz

My laptop HDD is 30 Gigs.

I have 2 externals, one is 200 Gigs and the other is 300 Gigs. They both are more than 75% full. I'll need to buy a new one soon.
turbosquid
In my desktop machine i've got 2 x 250GB in caddys and 2 x 80 GB drives although i don't really use my desktop machine other than for storage i guess it's more of a NAS server.

In my notebook (Samsung X60plus Core2Duo X7200) which i use all the time, has a 120GB drive which to be fair is more than enough for general use.

TurboSquid
leppard
I have 1x 40gb
and 3x 20gb

They are not enough to store everything I need, I use dvd's to store everything else I need from time to time.

Soon I'll have to upgrade to 500gb, but my budget does not allow for that at the moment.
silentdae
I think this topic is pretty hilarious. I mean, how big is your hard drive? hah

Anyways, i have two. My main one (where my OSes reside) is 250GB. It's a Seagate Barracuda 7200.8, decent speeds, pretty quiet. My other one is an old 20GB WD. My Barracuda actually died and i had to get it replaced but it's been fine for about 5 years now.
silentdae
Oh and also, this should really be in the Hardware and Electronics section.

On one of my computer I have a 120GB hard drive on the other computer I have like 48 or something like that I barely used any on my 48 and the 120GB one I just got and I don't think I will be using that much space on it.

I have a 80GB hard disk for my laptop. I'm not sure whether I'm getting a new one or not. I'm left with 45% free space, but I wish to keep it above 50% to reduce disk fragmentation. Should I buy a new one? And are there any 200GB hard disks for laptops?
froginabox
Right now running a WD 250 gig, a Hitachi 125 gig, and a WD 20 gig.

The 250 holds all my music and video files, the Hitachi does Windows 2000 and XP, and the 20 does mandriva 2006 quite well.


I am coveting one of those new 1tb externals... I'd never get one, but it is pretty nifty.
internetjobs
if you are working only with word files or else.. it is enough for you.. but if you are working with Adobe Premiere, Photoshop or other video editing or photo editing or simulation softwates... you must want a higher capacity harddisk

I have a modest 80 Gb hard disk. I think this is enough for me. I don't need more at the moment. More space available always leads to more crap and junk files dumped on the system.

I have seen people with over 200 Gb hard disk cribbing about not enough space as the have all useless files dumped onto the disk, with no time to organize or arrange them.

Ah, Hardware capacity >_< it's something that plagues me everyday. On my desktop (the one I'm typing from), there are 2x200gb. Then there's the 60gb on my old laptop, plus an old western digital 80gb external drive. All of them are maxed out. I bought a WD mybook 250gb external a few months ago and that thing died on me with a lot of stuff saved in there. >_< And then there's the 120gb on the new laptop I ordered a few days ago. So it totals to:

2x200gb
60gb
80gb
120gb
--------
660gb (not counting the 250gb external that died, which I will try to take apart and fix later)


T__T I really need a few TB of space. I have no clue where all that space went...

i used to have a raptor 36GB and another 80GB caviar Western Digital HDD in my rig. The 80GB one died a few weeks back so now i have replaced it with a Hitachi Deskstar 250GB HDD. If my raptor were to give up on me, then I'll most likely get another Hitachi 250GB and RAID it.

Is there any advantage of having two 80 GB hard disks instead of one 160 gb one ?

3rd: laptop- 80GB (don't know brand)

As you can see i like Western Digital Razz

Now with the new laptop setup:
Internal = 160gb 7200rpm SATA
External = 400gb 7200rpm SATA / USB 2.0 interface (a Western Digital Elements drive)

I'm thinking about getting a smaller drive with a firewire 800 interface to record onto... I do recording with ProTools, and I notice some lag while using the USB drive. Anyone know if the firewire will help that lag go away?

There are some advantages and some disadvatages...
The chances of losing all your data due to HDD crash, are cut almost to half!
Also you might get more speed. Especially if they are connected to different controllers, you may transfer files faster. (although this doesn't really happen, because there isn't a source that can provide more data than they can handle...). Maybe you could also put them into raid or something...(for extra speed, or extra data security).
...and thats were the good news end
2 HDD, mean double power consumption, greater heat generation, more noise, one more slot from the HDD controller. If you upgrade in the future with an other disk, they will only get you extra space, and you might be forced to remove one of them.
Also,e.g. 2x80GB are more expensive than 1x160GB...

BUt, at the end, it is your choise

I have 120 GB.

fiendskull9
2x250gb right now
MeddlingMonk
I have two Seagate hard disks.

1 x IDE 160 GB
1 x SATAII 250 GB

Since my motherboard only supports SATA I, the 250GB drive slows down. And the actual capacity in Windows (due to the difference between 10^3 and 2^10) is actually 232GB. I find these drives adequate, as I have my Windows installation (and all programs) on the 160GB drive and all my files, etc. on the 250GB. The main reasons for the drives being the size they are is that I deal with multimedia projects often (ie. video and audio, etc), so this requires a large amount of space.

Ehhh, 2 hdd's isnt faster, and not more secure, as you dont use it in raid, only if 1 of the hdd's crashes you got another one, but with other data on it. if you do it with raid, its or faster, so 2 hdds of 80 gb makes together 160 GB, or more secure, so 2 hdd's are identical copys, so when 1 of it crashes, the other one got still everything on it, or you take 4 hdd's of 80GB and 2 for faster and 2 for copy

Of course there is. You can access the two drives at once which would result in a better overall system performance (as far as hard disk "speed" is concerned). But of course, it wouldn't always be like you'll get twice the speed or that you'll get the "speed boost" every time. It would still depend on how the two hard drives are used.

Now back to the topic. I currently have one 80 GB HDD but I'm planning on buying a 250 GB (or 160 GB) this week. Wink

I use ONLY Western Digital. Since I got first computer magazine, I am in love with this brand. Don't ask me why: I guess I was impressed about the advertising back in 1996. And I think they are the first guys who beat any boundary...

I used only 7200rpm and I tried to keep up with the connections: IDE, SATA, SATA2; 2 Mb cache, 8Mb cache, 16 Mb cache...
I had 20 Gb, then 80 Gb, now 250 SATA.

I will quote one of my friends: doesn't matter how big is the hard drive, you ALWAYS feel it small. Smile
When I upgraded my 20gigs/2Mb cache to 80gigs/8Mb cache I was thrilled... The same for the 80 to 250 Gb upgrade...
But today, 250Gb/16Mb cache seems small.
WHY!!!??? You don't need to answer to that. Smile

I've got 80GB (WD) + 2x 160GB (seagate) on my desktop. Then another 80GB in my laptop, and then a 1TB (seagate) drive that's currently in an external enclosure attached to my laptop. The 1TB drive is basically a duplicate/backup of the 2x 160GB on my desktop at home (I'm currently at university w/o the desktop)...

From about the 1.6GB hard drive to the 80GB hard drive I preferred Western Digital, but Seagate has improved greatly so that they generally offer the best price/reliability/performance ratio.

So ~1.480 TB of space.

I only have 160GB both on my desktop and laptop. I've been thinking of upgrading my desktop's HD, but I don't know how to go about copying my OS and all files to a bigger HD. I can't reinstall Vista, since I don't have the disc. Sad

Buy an external hard disk. It is better to have one around if you plan to transfer movies or large amounts of music.



Pen drives are also ok, but if you collect music or movies, better have an external HDD

A quick 600 GB harddrive for my programs and stuff. And another 1000GB External hard drive to store my DVDs and backups on. Have enough with that. I'm actually already happy with my 600GB, but I need my external for backups.

I thought 160 GB would be enough for me when I bought my computer. But now I am struggling with 500 GB hard disk even.



Most of the files are not essential, but sorting through them and deleting the useless ones and storing unused data on DvD is postponed indefinitely.

This comment was made in 2006, This reminds me of that infamous quote attributed (and probably wrongly) to Bill Gates made in the 80s: "640K ought to be enough for anybody." Referring to RAM.

I've just got myself a 1TB drive which means I now have a total of 1.5TB. Not bad. I don't need all that space, but what with the prices being what they are I would only have been saving pennies by getting a smaller drive. Which is ridiculous, but there you go.

DO NOT BUY SEAGATE EXTERNAL HDDs

all the people all around the world say have some pretty bad comments on SeaGate Expansion External. I Do NOT know about the other products. I bought one and it only worked for 2 months. Had to wait around one month to send and receive the HDD since My country do NOT have a RMA point Sad
However, their Return policy is pretty awesome. The Best i know of. No Questions ask. If you send a broken drive with proper insulation, they'll return a drive within 3-7 working days Smile

Have said that,
I have

2TB SeaGate Expansion External
320GB Hitachi (laptop)
320GB WD (laptop)
500GB SeaGate FreeAgent Go (which is Not actualy mine though :p)
________
3.14 TB

but Those are not TiBi bytes. So
1 000 000 000 000
3.14 /1.024 /1.024 /1.024 /1.024
= 2.8558 TiBi

If their return policy is good, I guss it will still be a good option for me.

I have Seagate Service center in my city. I guess I could return it there and get it replaced if anything gos wrong

I used to buy Seagate Internal Hard Disks for my desktops

But recently I am using Western Digital.


So no idea about quality of Samsung recently

it seem windows 7 have problem with 3TB partition. if i use up my 3TB hdd in 1 partition, i will get a lot of file structure error and lots of bad sector. i thought the hdd really got bad sector and send it for RMA and bought another 3TB hdd just to encounter the same error. then i partition it to 1TB and 2TB, after 1 month there is no error. seem like windows 7 32 bit cannot handle 3TB partition.

oh yes, now i got back my 3TB from RMA....

Hmm, 128 GB + 1 TB + 500 GB + 500 GB, so 2.125 TB. Definitely not enough, I need to buy a NAS at some point along with a pair of internal drives for this desktop to put in RAID 1. I'm losing a bit of sleep over data loss, but ever since the Thailand floods, the hard drive market has been in a dismal state. Not only were they very expensive for a while, the entire hard drive market is now dominated by two companies: Seagate and Western Digital. Samsung sold off their hard drive division to Seagate (and as a result, the quality of their formerly excellent drives went down the drain) and Hitachi's GST was acquired by Western Digital. About the only consumer hard drive that can still be considered dependable right now is the Western Digital Caviar Black series. Of course, the also cost a pretty penny. Confused

At least SSDs are dropping in price very quickly.

I have about 320gb on my MacBook Pro 13" Late 2011. Looking at the first page, you can see that most people used to have only about 80gb of space in their computers. This thread was first posted more than 5 years ago. This shows how much computer specifications evolved over time. I wonder what computer specifications would be like by 2015 and 2020.
