    Plenty, or do you run close to the wire?

    Re: QOTW: How much free storage do you have left on your PC?

    I've got 1200 GB (binary) free of 6 TB total (decimal), on my main desktop which stores everything - Blu-Ray backups, mp3s, pictures, Steam games, etc. I installed a bunch more games and backed up a bunch more films after adding a 3 TB drive a couple years ago.

    Among the drives, my 1 TB SSD is 14% free, and my two non-backup hard drives are both 28% free.

    The SSD space has felt a bit tight at times, and I've migrated some of its contents to HDD. But the HDD space available still feels like plenty.

    Re: QOTW: How much free storage do you have left on your PC?

    Boot drive 19% free.
    Games drive 62% free.
    Media drive 45% free.
    Rapid Access Drive 100% free, but it's only just gone in.
    Drive 5 86% free, as it's also new and only used to help eliminate the terrible lag on Star Citizen.
    Drive 6 99% free, but again new and its a whole 8TB, so got a ways to go yet.

    My biggest worry is the Boot drive, and I'm working on clearing out as much of the junk as I can.
    I might have to bite the bullet, Clean Install the OS, and then suffer through doing all the tweaks and setups to get things working just right.


    I hate reinstalling Windows.

    Re: QOTW: How much free storage do you have left on your PC?

    Inside my PC case:
    25.4TB total, 3.7TB free

    Direct attached storage (not counting spare HDDs for the USB dock):
    5.0TB total, 1.1TB free

    NAS storage:
    81.1TB total, 5.5TB free

    Overall, thats ~111TB or which 10.4TB is currently free, but I expect to free up another 20TB or so as soon as my sweep for duplicates and stuff I no longer need is completed.

    My laptop is a much more healthy 2.5TB free across its three 1TB SSDs

    I have 2321GB free across 3 seperate Solid State Drives in my new PC. None has less than 700GB free out of about 931GB on each. I intend to not over fill them like I used to do, as I don't want to wear them out! So I'll be deleting more things as I go along to keep them fresh and speedy.

    687GB free on my boot NVMe (out of 837GB useable)
    398GB free on my games NVMe (out of 1.63TB useable)
    26.5GB +189GB free on my Backup / Recovery NMVe (out of 231.9GB useable).

    I reserve ~10% for over provisioning on my drives.

    Re: QOTW: How much free storage do you have left on your PC?

    Over 20%.

    My OS NVMe SSD has been set to a little bit more over-provisioning than the default in the hope of greater useful life, but that doesn't show up in the reported space of the drive.

    Sometimes I do things like prune old versions of downloads when I'm sure this and the last version work OK. Then I can feel inspired to do a bit more tidying up of old downloads, so several tens of GBs can be cleared then.

    Drive A. 221GB Free from 500GB
    Drive C. 77GB Free from 250GB
    Drive D. 181GB Free from 680GB*


    * the reason for the odd number is that both C & D are partitions of a 1TB NVMe SSD

    Re: QOTW: How much free storage do you have left on your PC?

    About 3.5 TB

    330 GB of those are on the C: NVME drive with the OS, and 200 GB on a SSD, the rest is on a single spinning disk.

    As the question is about the PC, i will not mention the XX TB on the NAS
