I can't take it any longer... I need to add more hard drive space. I'm thinking of buying a 1TB HD to stick inside of my G5 and then replacing my 160gb boot drive with a 500 gb boot drive. The drive with 1 terrabyte of space is going to be used mainly for my music library. Yes, I know how big it is and yes, I know how many songs is needed to fill that thing up. I encode all of my music with Apple Lossless and I receive 2-5 new CDs a week. With my already huge amount of music, the files add up quick. My main question with the 1TB drive is if I should partion it. For example, I'm thinking of doing four 250gb partition... one for A-E, one for F-L and so on. I'm thinking of partitioning so that the one hard drive won't totally crawl. Is this unnecessary for me to do? Should I just get an external drive so that I don't have to swap out drives when I upgrade computers? I'm also purchasing the 500gb internal drive to be my boot drive and store some other non-music files on. I'm thinking of separating it up into an applications partition, a photo partition, and a video partition. Am I making this process too complicated?
