Maxtor 250 (or 233) GB external hard disk, USB 2.0. Have reformatted it to NTFS. Currently moving my entire Torrents folder there. And THEN let us see if there is any truth to the "law" that any hard disk, no matter its size, will be full within 6 months. MUAHAHA!
Well, nibble my tail for a surprise! After moving the Torrents folder to the new disk, it turned out that it was indeed 39 GB rather than 15. I had thought it surprising that it was so small, but accepted it because of the enormous amount of anime I have burned first to CD and lately to DVD.
