Windows A California man is suing Microsoft, alledging that his Surface tablet did not provide the advertised amount of disk space. The 32G device has 16G of space for users, as the operating system uses the other 16G. The 64G Surface leaves 45G free for users. The case will turn on whether Microsoft has clearly explained to customers how much free space the Surface leaves for their use outside of the OS. How much disk space does your OS consume?

I think all my music albums I have come (in flac) to about 1 gig.


You only have 3-4 albums in your collection?

Even a short album is still 250Mb-300Mb after FLAC compression.

When I ripped my CD collection to FLAC I pretty much filled a 1Tb hard drive. On my 40Gb player I can only fit a small fraction of my favourites without downsizing them to MP3.
