    Gosh Ron, I never knew there was that much out there !
    Makes my 58/78 GB look like a bag of Tuck Shop treats.

    I set this up to see what others had relative to me. Well you sure have given me an eye opener at the first pitch. Guess I`m still in infants school.

    Hello Darknight,
    Thanks for taking part, but it is a specific question not a bar chart.

    So is this saying that we are buying computers with way too much capacity that we can't possibly fill? o_O

    For me it is from using 200mb drives and having to use pkzip on everything because floppies only held 1.44 and there were no cdr's yet. I still remember my first gb drive. The freedom of having a lot of space available to copy that 8gb directory, or when working on a project, having 50gb free to copy the project 10 times and mess with each copy independently. I seem to almost fill a drive up, then end up deleting a lot of it after a spell.

    The fear of being full drives me to buy bigger drives when I can. A few months ago I deleted a lot of archived stuff I have had for maybe 8 years. Roughly 600gb of data I decided I could live without.

    On my old computer, system is Windows Xp fat32 frozen at 1.03 gb with only a free space of 75.4mb. The rest is occuppied by Linux.
    I still use it for web surfing and that free space stays the same after reboot. Been that way for months.

    Ah, my old sparring partner - you have a very significant point there.

    Looking at the results so far, it is astonishing the high proportion of Free Space we all have. So, back to twl`s question. Why ? Is it a prestige thing to have an enormous capacity that will never be needed ? The bigger, the better ?

    Takes me back to my playground days where the phrase "Mine`s bigger than yours" was heard often amongst the little ruffians.

    Had 19 GB free on C:\ but yesterday after some shrinking and stretching here and there with the inimitable Partition Wizard (man I love this partitioning disk :D ), it's now @ 34 GB free/85 GB total ;)
