    SSD is obviously my SSD, it has all my games on it (I uninstalled most of them lol). C is my Windows 10 partition and E is my Windows 7 partition. Garmin Edge 20 is my bike GPS.

    D: drive could probably go for some cleaning out, but I probably won't get around to it until it fills up more

    330tb free of 1.1~1.2tb of SSD's that's currently connected to the computer, though one of the drives isn't seen because it's in a raid array as a parity disk on the MegaRAID card here. No HDD's... allergic to HDD's here :)

    a few TB's of HDD's are hiding out in the desk drawer where my computer is safe from the slow hell they are made of.
    They're backup disks, though that being said, I can barely stand how slow they are, though the velociraptors amongst them aren't nearly as bad as the seagate that must be failing in some way because it's a seagate and that's about all they do... is fail... CRASH CLANK BANG CRUNCH CRUSH SMASHEY-SMASH SMASH DINK BONG BZZZT CLANK *files done*...

    I have to buy some new SSD's. the Micron 1100 is looking nice, and the Crucial mx300 is nice too.
    So if you're in the market, they're both pretty reasonable and Micron is pretty good.

    I guess I am glad I don't get into the torrent stuffs. I used it once or twice to download linux, but my computer doesn't even know what a torrent is, and hasn't ever seen one. I don't think our DSL rubbish-maximus would like it too much (it's REALLY slow).

    I just hoard anime and manga. AT&T sucks but it's not that bad if I limit the number of connections and upload speed. Good enough for the 1 private tracker I'm on.

    I uninstall games I don't play after a while so I have a pretty decent amount of space.

    I have roughly 1.6TB of space across all three of my hard drives, and they're all mechanical drives.

    The main drive is a 1TB that this computer came with. My games are put here.
    My Seagate desktop external hard drive has 232gb in storage space, and this drive is about 10 years old.
    My Western Digital pocket external hard drive is Half a Terabyte, which all my artwork is stored on that drive.

    Across all three drives I have almost a Terabyte of free space.

    Funny part of all this is, today, I restarted the machine, and all kinds of alarms went off on the MEGARAID bios screen... an SSD has passed away, though I am not sure it was quite ever right from the start.
    On a bright note, a 1tb flash/SSD array takes <10 mins to rebuild. YAY for choosing enterprise grade MLC nand.
    Most people would have lost everything to a failed drive, not I, hot spares, RAID cards, this data is safe, never mind it's backed up onto several spinners hiding in the desk *AND* the irreplaceable stuffs is both online & with friends for safe keeping.
    So, what was 10~12 minutes later, I'd say it's the absolute best investment you can make to run RAID 1, RAID 5, or RAID 10 (or 50 or 60 if you've got lots of cash to burn).
    Raid 0 is fine for scratch drives but not any real workflow or storage, steam games maybe, but no not otherwise.

    Too bad I bought the last of the Toshiba nand old stock lot... now I have to try new drives.
    Just figured I'd post because hey I was just posting about this today or yesterday. Ah well, no data lost, almost no downtime, and no lost productivity.

    Always keep your data safe.

    111 GB/904 GB. Other 96 GB is Windows + bloatware because prebuilt.

    Well I have GTA 5 Redux installed so this is no surprise.
