    1. Delete a bunch of shit.
    2. Empty the Recycle Bin.
    3. Turn on compression on files you don't use very often.
    4. Come up with a more secure way to store your data, instead of putting half a terabyte on a single disk and hoping it doesn't die.
    5. My second-grade math teacher taught us that the < and > signs were like hungry crocodiles -- they always eat the larger number.

    Fool.

    i think you'll be pretty hard pressed for sub 100, but you can get one for just over 100.

    If you're not in a hurry, keep your eye on Fatwallet.com

    You can find a 16mb Seagate 500gb for around $100 if you keep checking there.

    usually you can find a 500gb maxtor drive for right around $100 maybe on sale

    i usually wait for seagates to drop to around $100 though. i think they go for $120 normally

    shit, i remember paying $200 for a 40gb drive several years ago
