How cluttered is your hard drive, /g/?
Do you save tons of shit?

Unfortunately my 4chan misuse causes me to have tons of shitty pictures to use for thread starts. It's gone out of control and I dread the day I decide to clean through it all.
>>
Very.

I'm clearing out the 16k+ images I have saved since ~2003.

the best thing is when your hard drive crashes and you have no backup. so liberating.

>tfw you have five different places of back up which all features some of the same files, so you can't just delete old ones because some of that is non existent on the new ones
>>
it just bothers me to have clutter, for some reason. my windows partition has a few games and other essential software. i rarely save things like images, and if i do i try to organize it neatly. its odd, irl my shit is a mess
>>

I had it all nice and organized. Then my HDD crashed and I used recovery software to get the files back. The only problem was that they were now all dumped into one folder and had names like 01232032023124.jpg and so forth. Fuck my life.
>>
My HDD is 80GB, so I can't afford clutter.
>>
>>45403492
Is this you? If so you are very pretty.

I have plenty of clutter. I've been meaning to buy a 4TB drive to consolidate everything lately, but I keep putting it off. Luckily, my clutter is well organized, even if it is spread across several drives. I've gotten to the point where I use Everything (the search program) to locate shit when I need it instead of navigating the maze of folders.
>>
My drives are complete chaos.
There are backups of old systems and often backups of those backups in places I don't remember on different drives. It's a mess and I can't be arsed to neatly organize all the crap that's been building up for 10 years

My camera folder is bigger than your drive, and I don't take many pictures. I had an 80 GB drive in my machine back in 2002.

My 750GB folder of stuff. My entire computing life is in that folder.
>>
>>45404063
>bitcoin wallets
>other stuff
all that under 750GB?

also 10/10 for labeling

>>45404063
How do i FLAC?
>>
>>45404152
752 GB to be exact. The crypto wallets are 40GB total, but they grow several GB each time i sync them for obvious reasons. I prefer to use the full wallets though, I've had nothing but trouble with "lightweight" wallet implementations.

>>45404203
I like waffles.
>>
I save quite a bit of stuff, but most of it is organized decently. My documents and downloads folders aren't organized at all, it's not worth naming/categorizing shit nicely considering how infrequently I use their contents more than once and how easy it is to find things with ranger/coreutils.

>>45403428
dude make a torrent. I'll keep them.
