    Default Poll: How Many HDD do you have (in and out of computers)

    How many HDD do you have that you would use regularly (at least once a month) this is including internal and external drives. Just for example a raid external with 4 drives in it counts as 4 not 1.

    Waay, waay too many. There's 6 in my PC alone. 3 in my PMG5. Then there's My Mini, MBP, and MB. No lie, there's about 10 or 11 laying around my room, doing nothing... all sized between 80GB-500GB!
