lots of anime and porn :freak:

my torrents run 24/7 pretty much. Only time they are down is if I'm gaming, which isn't often, or if the machine is restarting.

I generally set my machine to reboot at specific times and then my torrents automatically resume at system start up

What's to get? It's the same as any other cartoon on the planet. It's not like all anime is the same. Pay attention to what's happening and the story being told. Only time you dont have to pay attention to a story is something like Family guy where there IS no particular story.

I have 2 40GB HDD's

First one 3.68GB Left

Second One 18.1GB

The first one has all of my games on it, except one (oblivion). Second Is were all of my music/torrents go.

I have to defrag the both of them pretty soon. I just start to download O & O Defrager, im gonna try out that program, it has to be better than the windows one.

Yeah, it's better by about a million times lol. Windows couldn't defrag that one drive I just posted at all. Kept saying it couldn't move a lot of files.

That O&O Defrag got it to how you saw it where it was solid blue and white lol.

Infact! I've got before and after pictures lol.

200gb before defrag:




200gb after defrag:




I used O&O Defrag for that, great program.

But yeah, my 200gb runs out of space every other day lol. My downloading is ridiculous, it stuns even me sometimes.

I've got 30gb left out of 360gb right now and that's only cause I recently deleted 20gb of stuff.
Amazing, you cant get any better than that
Ill have to download that i think!

So when my one main hard drive starts to get really full and i notice the system slowing down etc, will adding a second bigger one make it ok agian or will i have to get some stuff of the main hard drive(one with win xp on) and put it onto my new one? i guess id have to wouldnt i?
