Benchmark Scores I've actually never benched it!! Too busy with WCG and FAH and not gaming!! :( :(
With a lot of media converting, it eats the space but I still would love more space :) When I have the main rig on I'll grab a pic :)

I generally go along with a 250/275GB SSD for the OS, then whatever size of drive I can find or get for the rest. That said, a mate did give me a birthday present recently (birthday not till August lol) so I've got some more space, but it seems that its not lasted and well that's 75% full already :D :laugh: Damn my Steam account and faster internet connection! :laugh:

Man those WD Green SSDs are rather popular in my country eventhough their endurance are really on dumpster level of SSDs. 60 TBW for that 480 GB, just what in the world WD is thinking of smh... :roll:

Haha yeah they're nasty on that front, but it was super cheap and I don't mind replacing them down the road :oops:

I suspect the endurance rating is so low because it's a single-die QLC SSD, but hey, at least it isn't dramless ;)

8 TB worth of SSDs and an 8 TB HDD. The 8 TB HDD which is mostly filled is mostly games, will probably move a lot of that to the unused 4 TB SSD.
HDDs from 12tb and up are helium-filled and thus much quieter than air-filled ones. I suggest you use the 8tb Seagate as backup and unplug it. or use HDDScan program to spin it down to zero rpm.

That server drive is not partitioned? u could lose 10tb of data if something goes wrong + lots of defragmentation

Its ZFS on a Z2 partition double redundancy. It's not going anywhere. 5 - 6 Tb drives. And it has a cold back up

Pretty much basic for me:
MyStorage.jpg


The 2 TB one is an Sabrent Rocket 4.0 for OS/games, and the 4 TB is a Samsung SSD 870 QVO for all of my 3D content/databases. Not in a hurry to fill them up anytime soon, but once I start getting more games, I'll probably be throwing in a 4 TB Sabrent SSD for the OS/games drive.

At least put OS on a separate partition, lots of small files defragment the drive interfering with larger files. ;)

This is food for thought for hard drive usage; my Windows folder contains over 250,000 files, so I am not sure it will help.

I'm not saying you are wrong; I'm just concerned about limiting the OS to a smaller space.

Death to mass storage?

This is food for thought for hard drive usage; my Windows folder contains over 250,000 files, so I am not sure it will help.

I'm not saying you are wrong; I'm just concerned about limiting the OS to a smaller space.

120gig you should be very comfortable even with documents on OS drive. I currently have 160gig partition for my OS drive and is kind of bugging me I gave it too much space lol, its 66.2gig used out of 160. Unless the OS drive is 120gig or smaller I personally think its good practice to partition, I dont mind giving my reasons.

  • File table management, higher file count makes this increase, and will typically be high on a OS drive. (MSFT), so nice to keep this small on non OS drives/partitions.
  • You can reinstall OS, clean format of OS partition, with everything else impact on other partition, (which can include documents, pictures if they were relocated of OS drive).
  • If you only have one physical drive, partitioning allows you to relocate stuff of main OS drive, which increases flexibility a ton, and of course maybe you break the OS, then restoring a older image, wont then restore over older documents etc. I would also keep browser profile, emails etc. of OS drive for this reason.
  • Installing games etc. on other partition you wont ever eat in to space thats on the OS drive basically reserved for OS drive use.
  • In case a filesystem repair needs to be carried out, it can be done online usually on any non OS drive.

One reason to keep everything on one partition:
  • ctrl-x ctrl-v works blazing fast :D


get minimum 12tb, they're filled with helium from this capacity onwards. significantly quieter than air-filled ;)

True haha.

One reason to keep everything on one partition:
  • ctrl-x ctrl-v works blazing fast :D


get minimum 12tb, they're filled with helium from this capacity onwards. significantly quieter than air-filled ;)
well, anything would be quieter than a pair of 600GB 15000rpm seagate cheetah 15k.7 running at full tilt when installing a game

but im considering either 2 8TB drives or one 12TB for mass storage, just to reduce the amount of hard drive i have installed on my pc
