[Reader Survey] How Much Disk Space Does Your Computer Have, And How Much Have You Used?

disk space survey

Disk space is abundant and cheap. These days, you can get a 2 TB hard drive for under $100 from Newegg. I remember one of my first work computers, about 10 years ago, that came with a whopping 2 GB of storage. Those days are long gone. With the move to solid state drives, though, storage space is getting smaller, at least on a single solid state drive. My MacBook Air has a 128 GB drive, which would have felt humongous even a few years ago, but now feels small compared to my Windows 7 machine.

What do you think? Is disk size even as important as it once was? With the move towards the cloud, I’m finding that I don’t miss a bigger drive in my Air (but, then again, I’m not editing video on it).

How much disk space do you have? How much of it have you used? And do you feel that you have enough?

If you’re feeling constrained for space, tomorrow we’ll take a look at how to free up anywhere from one to three GB by removing Windows 7 Service Pack 1 backup files.
