I just recently looked at my collection of download "freeware ;) and stuff that I've backed up off of CD's ;)" and it's pretty big :), how much HDD space are you using on software "backed-up" ? hmm and what's your largest file size ?

Currently, my downloads folder is 2.82GB. All that stuff over my 56K line :D

Largest file... Call me insane, but it's a 2.1GB text file filled with prime numbers. :D It's zipped up and stored on CD, and I'm currently calculating more primes to fill a second CD. Grand total when I'm done should be 4GB of primes, 2 through 7 Billion :D :D

Largest single file? Right now, a 1-GB encrypted disk image, although in the past I have created a 4.1 GB file just to prove that the ext3 filesystem can support files larger than 4 GB.
