Wtb: 2x40gb Ide Hard Disks

Recommended Posts

Before I go buying new I thought I may aswell ask here...

 

Anyone from the UK got a couple of [preferably] identical (as in, same make / model) 40GB hard disk's going cheapish? :)

I just looked at the briefcase computer and the two small drives in there (totalling a massive 10gb) appear to be getting a little bit full.

 

Filesystem    Size   Used  Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a   252M   126M   106M    54%    /
/dev/ad0s1f   252M   8.9M   223M     4%    /tmp
/dev/ad0s1g   2.7G   2.2G   308M    88%    /usr
/dev/ad0s1e   252M    23M   209M    10%    /var
/dev/ad2s1e   6.0G   4.6G   896M    84%    /usr/home
procfs        4.0K   4.0K     0B   100%    /proc
linprocfs     4.0K   4.0K     0B   100%    /usr/compat/linux/proc

 

I don't need huge capacities, heck 20gb would probably be quite alright but they dont appear to sell that small anymore (40gb drives new are very overpriced too,

Ok cool. I was looking at Seagates :rolleyes:

 

Might end up getting a single 80GB drive if I can't get a couple of 40GB drives cheap though :blink: Not that I would trust a single drive really :)

 

You know, for what it'd cost me to get two 40GB drives I could get a single 250GB drive!!! How messed up is that!?!
