is there a point when your HD is X% full that you typically upgrade to a larger one?

I usually never upgrade hard drives, I just add more. When I run out of room in the case, thasts when I start updrading the drives themselves.

Right now I am running one WD Raptor 76 gig 10,000 RPM drive for my linux and windows installs, and 4 seperate 400 gig drives for storage, so I got a while before I will need to updrade them.

I just add another hard drive. I have so much space that I'll never run out. Just there if I need it :)

I've never upgraded a drive for space reason, as i'm not a pack rat, but I'll upgrade every 3 +- years for speed reasons.

Once you go digital video, it just eats up the space...even with some fair compression. I just redid the drives in the Home Theater PC...from 620GB to 950GB. Even then it's dumping off to one of the few TB+ boxes.
