Between 6-7GB on my mp3. I expect more than 10GB at the end of this year.

I'm no expert, but aren't pictures and documents really small and 5 gigabytes really big?


Can't work mine out for the time being cos my computer cable exploded and I'm on my brother's laptop. Oops. I know I've downsized all my mp3s to 96kbps so they take up less space. I'm half deaf in one ear and listen to this stuff through crappy laptop speakers so there's not much point me having the best quality.

Text documents are small in size, but pictures take up space when there is a significant volume which in my case for the Manics is...9,000+.

It certainly is.


No wonder I've written a novella's worth of Manics smut...

I have around 2 GB of mp3s. No videos though. They'd too much space on my laptop and I wouldn't watch them that often anyway.

Only 1.9GB, I only have the complete discog, one bootleg and the Shadows and Words documentary on my laptop. The shame.
