    hard drive? I have one that's one TB and another external one that's 500gb. I'm thinking of getting a new case so I could hold more space.

    In my PC i currently have
    320gb - OS
    1TB - Main Moving Data Drive
    2TB - TV / Movies
    1TB - Archived Data

    Most of these are nearly full and I've just gotten a free 3-bay NAS from work so I plan on putting 3x 2TB drives in that and configuring it as RAID-5.

    Then the plan is to swap the 320gb to a 120gb SSD.

    I'm a massive hoarder of "Linux ISOs".

    I have ~15TB of HDDs sitting next to my PC that I plug in when I need stuff. Otherwise my main PC is 1x160GB SSD, with 2x2TB WD Black SATA3's. :)

    Not sure how that last post ended up in this thread! By the way I got a 1 TB and 1/2 just sitting on the sideline in case a drive fails in my main machine.

    Ugh. I've only had one WD die and that was when I dropped it onto concrete :rolleyes:.

    Any HDD will die - that's why you back up constantly.. With the low cost of cloud services like dropbox and Amazon S3 there is no reason not to (except if you live in Australia where your usage is capped :p).
