Just installing, booting etc. Windows XP was a big, silent and cheap forward using 2 Hitachi HDDs in a RAID 0. Recordings with fraps + gaming itself, encoding movies.. the list is so long. In my mind no need to mention examples. Contras always belongs to "I don't know how (doing it the right way), I can't do that alone, I just go with the mainstream and only know things someone I don't know in person wrote in a (lamer)-forum." My very important data of the last 30 years has still in 2020 an amount of 33,9 GB. That's almost nothing. All other data I can find in the WWW but of course I have multiple backups. The last HDD I lost with a headcrash was a 60 MB Seagate in the mid 90s and it's still a nightmare to think about that. Learn from mistakes! I lost thousands of hours. Source Code! - Even today I could swear my mother hit my PC with the vacuum cleaner on purpose.
