I'm just wondering.
I have 238.7 gb used on my hard drive.


Odd question, but 38.6GB

Column 3 shows full size, column 4 shows how much space is free. "ГБ"=gigabyte, "МБ"=megabyte

689 / 1527GB Across three logical disks (two physical).

And that's after moving 650GB of different shows onto my media server. Stats of that (without looking directly at it):

Approx. 1500 / 4096GB Across two physical disks.

Minecraft servers get rather sizable when you have the thing back itself up every 30 minutes.

Why does Windows still show the capacity in GiB (2^30) and not in GB (10^9) like OS X does? They're nearly always marketed in GB.

Nah, my old laptop had 73GB capacity. Only got rid of it about a month ago :P

In retrospect... having an almost full 2TB hard drive might be a bad sign.

At least you got that other one though, right?

18 gigs on a 150 GB drive. My 250 data drive went and died on me, and I've just been too cheap to buy a new one.

Laptop: 100G used out of 177G total (I have some movies/anime temporarily stored on here while I house sit this week, otherwise this would be closer to 70G)

Server: 8.7G out of 60G on main drive, 697G out of 1TB on storage drive

Not sure about my desktops since they're currently powered off.

I have 514GB of 169GB (514GB remaining) used. I think FRAPS is to blame for those huge videos it makes. Usually erasing it will give me back a lot more gigabytes!

Will you get a new one?

Probably. My current desktop is 6 years old, and can't do anything except play Doom and make loud fan noises. (Well, I'm exaggerating, but you get the idea)

219GB spread across three partitions on my desktop, shunted a lot of stuff onto an external drive recently to clear some space.

For the Amiga there's IBrowse and Voyager, for DOS there's Arachne and Lynx. You'll also need a TCP/IP stack but there's no shortage to choose from.

Amiga can use internal/external serial modems and ethernet cards (even PCMCIA stuff). Of course the internal cards have to be Zorro II or III bus, not ISA or PCI...

For DOS, you're covered hardware-wise if you can find a packet driver for your ethernet card (piece of cake with NE2000-compatible stuff). And there's a whole suite of DOS networking programs like ping, nslookup, telnet, ftp, lynx, etc. I can't remember where I found them (maybe SimtelNet mirror on ftp.cdrom.com) but that's what I used in 1995 before downloading Slackware.

Or you can just keep it simple and go the terminal emulator route (Telix, QModem, etc.) but then you're limited to textmode only (well ANSI graphics anyway, which I actually prefer to the graphic overdose ad-laden web).

The computer I use for GIS work has 354 gigs used in the "work" folder.
