  1. I thought I read somewhere that there was a certain percentage of capacity used on a drive that if exceeded, would make your hard drive more prone to errors or to fail. Is this true? I have a 400 gig drive that is loaded with orchestral samples. I just need to read from the drive, not constantly write to it. What % should I try to stay under to keep the drive operating efficiently?

    So what 400 gig drive do you guys recommend? I am going to use it as an extra drive (not boot drive) for sound fx files and samples that I need to stream and access for recording work. I am getting a new G5 2.3 or 2.7 and this would be the 2nd internal drive. Would the Hitachi Deskstar 7k400 be a better choice, or is it not a good idea to go to a 400 gig drive? Thank you.
