    I defrag some drives more than others.

    I keep space at about half - though it depends on what the partition is for:

    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I've just got 2 160 Gb SATA drives in a raid 0 that are my main OS and gaming drive - I do have a maxtor 80 Gb IDE drive thats used for downloads and mp3's which is used a lot

    I never ever hardly defrag except for about once every 3 months but I usually format before that time period is up as I'm always changing my system constantly and testing a few things for work.

    As for space used, on my C:/ I've got 23 Gb used out of 320 gb well about 310 after losses etc and my F:/ is about 67% full atm and filling fast.
