160GB Maxtor..free..what to do with it?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I have 3 drives. 2 250GB WD's and one Maxtor my dad gave me cause he had "no use for it". Heck, neither do I! But i said, what the heck?! Why not! So, what are some fun things i can do with it? I currently run Win Vista Ult. I contemplated doing a Linux install, but i dont wanna ruin my current setup with all the headaches that come from dual booting and what not. What would you do with 160GB of free, most likley unusable space?

Freebie section, give it to someone in need.

If its still working I can't say take it apart and make a 7200rpm fan or anything...cause that wouldn't be cool. But yeah thats my best bet...keep it as a backup

Me, personally, I would take that drive and download all of these torrents to it. Then, IF, that's a huge IF, the FBI come looking for me I slash /Street Fighter Move it into the street and hope a car runs it over.

Lol, too bad torrnets aren't illegal.

Edit /// I'll take it and use it as my main. My pins are all messed up and my hard drive sometimes doesn't function (which equals freezes).

Id say give it out to the freebie section if you can't find a use for it. If you want to keep it, use it as a pure media/backup drive or something.
