    Bah that’s nothing. Work’s DNS server just got updated and somehow logging has been re-enabled on some things we disabled. Get into work one day (Tuesday I think) to see it with 0kb left out of 10GB for the C:\ drive. Good times.

    Still worked super fine though, doing its routing job and all. :P

    some of my builds i’ve sold with 90gb ssd with the o/s and 1tb second hard drive for storage. everyone one of them the user filled the 90gb ssd up the first week and left the 1tb completely empty. no matter how much schooling and diagrams i show them they weren’t getting it. i’ve even offered to buy one back.

    Yep tecn0tarded, I have done that as well, it never works. No matter what you do or say, people will download/save to the default windows folders, and fill the OS drive/partition. Even if you change the windows defaults to the data drive, they get confused, make a folder on the desktop, and fill THAT.

    So I stopped trying to keep client data separate from the OS. These days my builds have 1 drive, one partition, 1TB or better. I won’t sell without a Toshiba (by preference) usb drive, for backups. I then demonstrate AND document how to backup. Then when they get a nasty malware or hard drive crash and lose all their stuff, I am not at fault.

    Lame.I can fill up a 3tb hdd in days.

    Windows usually crashes if you go below a certain threshold of available storage space. I’ve seen this in cases where a few megabytes were available. 20 KB? I think this is fake.
