Wait, wait, wait We’ve already done that one … no … this one is totally non-media related … well, maybe a little …
Something has just fallen into my hands. It’s big, real big, not the biggest around, but still pretty big. I just couldn’t wait to get home and play with it.
I am of course, talking about a shiny new 500GB SATA HD. What did you think I was I was talking about.
Come on people, minds out of the sewer & back in the gutter where it belongs.
Since I’ve given Windows the Flick, I thought I might move my OS to the fastest HD in my machine, being of course the shiny new 500GB HD, not to imply that it’s been polished or anything
First things first, partition it in the usual way, move all my home documents across … shouldn’t be more than a few hundred MB’s, right?
All was going well … until … I realised it was taking slightly longer than it should of … maybe it’d hung … Wrong … I knew it was a bad idea to install UT 2K4 into my home directory, not to mention the security issues … that said … My /home directory blew out to a massive 27GB’s, what with the occasional DVDrip, coversion and/or etc floating around.
So how big is your /home folder?
Those of you that remain part of the microsoft Borg may report the size of your “My Documents” folder instead, although it’s not a true indication, since microsoft feels the need to put things anywhere and everywhere, depending on which direction the wind is blowing today
And don’t unhide those hidden files in Vista, because you’ll find some nasty looking directories hiding in your default “My Documents” directory.
