Now that is impressive ... and I must say, your first hard drive was bigger than my first hard drive ... mine was 20 MB.

The 1.0 TB drive I just bought has 931 GB of formatted free space!

(And Aliens vs. Predator just ate up about 15 GB worth...)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

Oh boy. I have worked with computers for quite some time of my 17 years of life. My first computer was given to me at an early age, and old Compaq Tower made in 1998. It was given to me when I was 8, had an 8GB hard drive with Windows 98 on it. About a few months ago it's remains were sent to an electronic waste processing plant due to severe water damage, I kept the disk of it's hard drive though. hangs on the wall of my room.

Yeah, I did some cleaning and reorganizing the other day, and I found my Pentium 120 motherboard with CPU, Sound Blaster AWE 32, and Diamond Stealth and Monster 3D cards (they were all part of the same system at the time). I think I'm going to keep them as souvenirs. I'm not sure if they work, though.

Hiding unused "removable storage" devices from "Computer" folder
Not a major issue, of course, purely cosmetic, but still a minor annoyance none-the-less: I have a number of card reader drives that I never use (haven't even removed that plastic cover tape from them to help keep the dust out) that show when viewing the "Computer" window that displays drives. ...
