Is having a huge collection of multimedia on your computer a sensible thing to do in this day and age?
I recently bought a laptop with a 1TB hard drive. I'm not sure whether if I should switch completely to Netflix and Spotify, or should I continue to store files on my computers.
Pro (of switching):
- Secured (file lost)
- Space (but what would you do with 1TB?)
- Time (not having to download things)
- Not feeling like you're possessing your collection
- Streaming is limited in some countries (travelling is my life)
- Internet is not available everywhere
I'm curious, but those of you who don't store a lot of multimedia on your computer, what do you do with your space?

Mainly programs only, I don't like keeping stuff on the HD as I like it to be as empty as possible.
Prefer storing data on an external HD or USB thumb drive, of which I have 17 of it hehehe.

You guys need to get with the times. Xnxx.
Downloading porn, smh. Ain't nobody got time for that.
To answer the question, mainly Films, games and programmes. Music is straight to my phone but I do keep some backups on the PC.Last edited by So Instinct; 24-01-2014 at 01:52.

Countless documents of varying natures
A few selfies (don't ask... and these are clean selfies btw!!!)
The odd token picture
Barely any music and barely any video (spotify and youtube exist for that)

My siblings and I each have our own laptops an external hard drive which stores our music/movies/family pictures and videos/files/software and just basically any **** which all of us may need access to. Of the 2tb on that we have less than 250gb left.
On my own laptop I only keep uni files, music and Finding Nemo (for my nephew ). I also have Sims 3 but I'm contemplating uninstalling that. I don't use my laptop to store anything. Because I'm the type who breaks everything she touches (my brother and I call it "The [Vixen] Effect" ) I keep a back up of everything on the external hard drive. I have 379gb free on my laptop.
Sooo, is having a huge collection of multimedia on your computer a sensible thing to do? Hell no.

People still use computers or are you talking external hard drives?
On my computer, up until I was 15 and I got my first laptop, I guess there was lots of music, random files and notes, pictures, Chelsea goal videos and stuff, bit of porn etc

on my external hard drive are lots of document files (CVs, financial calculations, etc.), tons and tons and TONS of photos, mp3s, videos, and so on. You know, usual sort of stuff.

Basically just programs.
No pictures. No music. No videos.
Edit: This thread actually reminded me that I probably should have a clear out and free up some space. Just freed up 70gb by deleting programs and files I know longer use!
As you can tell, I like to keep my hard drive clear and organised!Last edited by Sir Killalot; 24-01-2014 at 12:21.
