fair enough. HDDs are pretty darn cheap, and getting cheaper as SSDs start taking over.

If you do have a lot of junk, I'd think about either a couple of drives, or some partitions to keep general files and folders of 'stuff' away from your system disk/partition. Theres nothing worse than important files 'going down with the ship' when your OS disk/partition decides to chuck a wobbly I myself am currently in the process of digitally archiving every single CD/DVD etc I have, and then I will get rid of most of the CDs/DVDs themselves via ebay or donating to a local library. Im sick of them all junking up my place. Out they go! I have 4TB(1TB each across 4 rigs) to spread them around on, so I think Im set for storage for a whiles yet !
