    Too true. Though after a while, I usually end up deleting anything I don't recognise or don't need. I used to have so much crap on my computer that I got back over 20GB back by deleting random, old documents and folders.

    I, at one point had 7 HDDs all setup in one of my desktops, Let me tell ya, that was one heck of a setup. Did I use all of them? Yup, Consisted of three 80GB, two 160GB, one 320GB, and one 1TB drives.

    To be honest, it was hard to get all my data to fit on just the 1TB before I gave the machine away.

    I'm still cleaning up my mess I caused, from back when my old server crashed and I scrapped it for parts.

    Now its just me and my netbook. Come in a few years, I'll have my dream build built.

    Consisting of 2 laptops, an HTPC, One gaming desktop, and one server.

    Lets see here, my netbook getting a 320GB HDD upgrade, The laptop with a 500GB drive, the desktop 640GB [total], the server 4TB [total].

    That's LOT of storage!

    I am past the forgetful stage and nowadays forget that I have forgotten things. I recently found photos that my grandmother must have given me before she died. I couldn't remember these photos at all. It was like seeing them for the first time.
    What a wonderful very emotional trip down memory lane I just wish that there was someone who could answer my questions as all of the photos are well before my time.

    Pooch I was going to reply to your post but was mobile so I couldn't get my phone to work with me.

    If those photos aren't digital, you should make them digital. Then again there'll be an argument on what media form is best.

    I hope you get the answers you're looking for.

    Ummm, well this post wasn't as good as I wanted...

    Thank you No probably not, as there is no one left to ask the best I can do is go back to where I think the photos where made and see if any of the locations still exist, that in itself would be interesting and bring a sort of closure.
    I scanned them onto my PC when I found them and the quality for these old black and white photos is remarkable. I will be keeping the photos as well tho.

    Thanks. I tend to be hard on myself when I have to retype posts.

    I'm almost ready to ditch this wireless keyboard or go with a different brand. Too many dang errors...

What hard drive is best these days for performance, reliability and low noise. The Samsung Spinpoint F1 used to be the drive of the day. I'm a little out of touch the last few years, the western digital caviar black looks good. Thanks Tony
Just installed Win 8 but cant for the life in me get it to see the other Hard Drives or DVD Drives. The problem might be that 'Intel(R) C600/X79 series chipset 6-Port SATA AHCI Controller' has a little yellow icon against it. However I cant seem to get rid of it. Any Ideas?
