Over the past week I’ve been attempting to get around to some cyber-housecleaning.  As you may know from previous articles, I have a networked-attached storage (NAS) device by Thecus that has five two TB drives configured in a RAID-5 array.

This year, I’ve managed to offload (by burning to BluRay discs and then moving to an external HDD) and create nearly three TB of free space.  Using the impressive WinDirStat utility (which is free), I’m able to get a graphical view of my storage allocation:

Here’s a Visio diagram representing the current allocation of storage:
