    Curiosity: How many harddrives do you have?

    So, here's the survey question for you audiophiles: How many harddrives do you have? What is on each harddrive? Audio? games only? stuff you don't want your kids to see? ^_^


    Personally, i have 2 harddrives, Drive C: and Drive D: (I'll switch Drive D: to Drive H: for less confusion)


    Drive H: has all my audio and games on it. Drive C: has everything else.

    Usually 2 HD's, each one partitioned into 2 partitions. Currently the second HD (80GB) is not activated, as it was a replacement for a defective drive I sent back. I will be formatting it soon and partitioning it again into 2 partitions. I intend to install XP on one of them. My first drive (120GB) has Windows 2000 and the programs on the first partition (30GB), data is on the second partition (82GB).

    I just took a look, and I seem to be running low on space on my active HD. I tend to accumulate so much junk!

    Re: Curiosity: How many harddrives do you have?

    I voted for 'Other' as I have two drives in my box (the OS and bits'n'pieces on the 6.4gb, binaries on the 80gb) plus four external drives - one each for music (200gb), video (250gb) and comics (200gb), with everything else (mainly spoken word) on the fourth (120gb).

    wow . a harddrive with only 6.4 gigs? Maybe I'm too young to see such a sight. I'm only 15. (just turned 15 last october)

    Are these harddrives salvaged from old computers or did you go out and buy the extra harddrives?

    Re: Curiosity: How many harddrives do you have?

    Six on my "Windows" box.....

    An 80 gig WD partitioned into 10 and 70 for OS and software
    A 250 gig Maxtor for projects
    A 250 gig and a 200 gig Maxtors for audio projects and collection
    A 250 gig and a 200 gig external Maxtors for backup

    Why count in gigs when there are terabytes......

    There's more on my two mainframes, but they don't run dbpoweramp :cry:
