    just wondering what is considered normal hard drive space on df users machines?

    i'm currently running 1.1tb on one machine and 650gb on the other, i'd be interested to hear what other users are running.

    @gimp, video work not warez as i'm not intrested in pc stuff at the best of times, uncompressed video takes a shitload of disk space at decent quality however

    @m3yer, using a selection of ata controller cards to give me 24 ide slots to fill

    45 Gb and 80Gb could do with some more space though

    Home LAN Server 200Gb
    Win95 Box 7Gb
    Laptop 60Gb
    Sky+ 120Gb
    Amiga A4000 1.25Gb

    Found a receipt for a hard drive which I purchased back in September 95.

    A 4 Gb drive cost me 299.99.

    At those prices, my current total HD space would have cost me 29117.78. Sobering thought.

    I have loads of old floppy disks about 20,000 of em, so theoretically I have about 28.8 gig ?

    Plus my 2 x 2.4 gig SCSI Wide drives, could you want anymore space than that ?

    2 hot swappable racks of 10 18.2 gig UltraWide SCSI = 3.64 Terrabytes, but set up as RAID 5 which looses a fair amount of drivespace, each rack ends up as 135gig.
    1 30 gig Western Digital IDE
    1 40 gig can't remember and can't get to easily

    4.4 terrabytes raw and unformatted, still well over 3 terrabytes formatted, and yeah, I do need it and I do use it, believe me no-one on this forum would take too long to fill all that space, but it does make it a real task to remember what and where everything is, as well as a good excuse to keep lots of totally useless sh!te :-)

    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.
