30+160+120+80=390Gb of space (not including 40Gb in D’s machine). How much is essential? None really… it’s not Real Life. Wanted? possibly 1Gb? I filled this HD the other day and some hard pruning back coupled with some copying to the other computer has freed up ~9Gb. The 160 is out of action still but while doing all this I found I’d been backing up really old stuff that I will never ever need again – nursing info mainly. So clearout has begun. I know space isn’t the issue here but unless I know what I need to backup and where it is I’ll both end up losing stuff I thought I’d got and keeping that which I do not need. Which makes it ineffective.

And once I’ve done all that I’ll decide how much to backup online. My domain? who knows…
