How much free space needed on OS drive?
How much space needs to remain free on one's hard drive containing the operating system?
My 750 gig drive has 107 gigs of free space left. At what point do I start storing things on a second drive?

ive heard leave 10% of your drive free the let OS X operate at the optimal level. so i would start backing up to an external when youve used 675GB
If you can't innovate, you just imitate, but it's never quite as good as the original.

OS X'll run with 0 free space. Right now I've got 1.78gb free, and it's by no means ideal, and if I open up some pro apps, it'll give me crap, but it works fine for 99% of things.
