When Hard Drives Get Small

Wow, I ran into a slight problem that I really didnít expect. I ran out of space on my laptopís 100G (technically 93GB)! Now, I've filled a 200G drive before, but I was converting my Hi-8 videoís to DV format. But, I really didnít expect to fill my laptop anytime soon.

Seems that copying my music collection is the biggest culprit at the momentóabout 40GB. And I have two copies of my photo collection (one with edits, and one as digital negatives) that are taking up another 25G. The rest are programs and associated media files! Wow, I have a lot of crap! 😃

Iíve been able to clean up about 12G so far, but I think I can move some other stuff as well. But I may just need to bite the bullet and upgrade the hard drive. 🙁 Maybe when (if) I get Vista.
