About a couple of months ago, I upgraded my hard drive to a larger capacity, but
still noticed movie files taking up a tremendous amount of space.. also I'm one
that likes to share being that since it takes so long to download movies, I feel
that I like to contribute the files I download so others can upload from me offering
more resources. For example, it took me 4 days to download "Interview With A Vampire", hopefully I help in making the download for others faster. But like
I mentioned, it still took up a lot of space.
I was able to find an External hard drive from "Maxtor". It's called the "Maxtor
Personal Storage 5000" and since it is an external hard drive, it is pretty simple
to install if you have a 2.0 hub. I now use this drive to store my downloads from here and other files that I don't want on my main hard drive. It has a 90 GB
capacity, which is great for just holding these tremendous movie downloads, etc and
I still can be courteous to other users of this site by keeping a few more movies
in my shared folder. It's not a hard drive for OS, more for personal storage and
it's Great for files downloaded here. You can find one for about $150.00 which
is pretty cheap considering the advantages of this instead of crowding your master hard drive or backing up files onto cd's or floppies.
