Out of Disk Space! in Nerd's Chatter [/nerds] Posted November 18, 2007 My computer is 6 years old. 40 gigs total. Just made a slave recently, when I hit 10 Gigs left, so I'm at a total of 80 gigs. I have a total of 51 gigs free. And I thought I was running low on total volume..... I limit everything I do. But I will be building a rig soon, And I am going to get 4 250 Gig hard drives. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is 2 250's better than 1 500, in terms of stability,or some other unknown to me issue? Anyway, A terabyte is plenty of room for now. I want plenty of room for my art programs and games and such. Overkill? Well perhaps I'll just start off with 500 total. GC remember this, you should at least, have 10 gigs free always.... And hard drives are cheap enough. Just make a slave. I did. Very cheap! Errrr cost effective! FCK YEAH RAID CONFIG! Ehh I just bought a 500gb drive, filled up my 320 last week. I give myself a month before I fill up the movie partition.
