    Hey Guys,

    Out of curiosity, how much HD space do you think the average user consumes? How much have you used?

    The use is probabbly very different on what the PC is used for.
    If one only uses it for storing some text files and pictures will use much less as sombody who uses the PC for video- applications.

    I have a dual-boot PC with windows and linux.
    Here is my "free space" list:

    Code ( (Unknown Language)):
    2. inux-85pi:/home/bert # df
    3. Bestandssysteem     1K-blokken  Gebruikt Beschikbr Geb% Aangekoppeld op
    4. /dev/sda6             20641788   5336788  14256360  28% /
    5. udev                    960992       304    960688   1% /dev
    6. /dev/sda7             97004176  58901328  33175316  64% /home
    7. /dev/sda1             61439996  22604144  38835852  37% /windows/C
    8. /dev/sda2             59694648    488788  59205860   1% /windows/D
    As you see I do not use any space on windows/D

    People tend to fill the HD to it is full. Most of it is junk. Deleting anything is out of question until you have to do it. If you have no multi media stuff. Most of use could be more than happy with a 140 GB HD. But well most of has more than that to day.

    How long is a piece of string?

    My laptops got 500GB and about 20% free.
    My main desktop has ~3TB with 10% free.
    My workshop computer is 80GB with 70%
    I've got approx 600GB of external drives and flash media which varies.
    My Gmail account is 7.5GB and about 75% free
    Web hosting is around 200MB
    beyond that there's the data stored on my flickr, facebook and whatever other accounts.

    I know individuals who have twice that on their computer and my grandmother couldn't fill her 20GB drive.

    There is no average consumer. Define it yourself and then check with real life.

    No one around you will match your definition.
