Wow! 12? Why?

Those were my thoughts Carl, but then again if they do a lot of video editing or such I suppose they would needs lots of storage.

I would use USB drives for that kind of storage - portable and don't over tax the hardware.

That's got to be one of the longest abbreviations I've ever seen!

And hey, you do need real HDD space to store VHDs on.

May I remind you that dynamic VHDs take up about 27kb of space when empty? Even on my smallest flash drive I could store a few hundred .

But empty VHDs don't provide any storage. If you're actually going to USE them, they have to be stored on a physical drive that possesses the amount of space you need.

I can't help much on this one actually as it is a member looking to migrate from a Mac to Win 7. Out of my league a bit. It's an interesting thread though, if anyone wants to take a look and possibly join in, it's here:
