I don't think this has been done on BA before (I tried searching... but couldn't find anything), but if it has, feel free to lock this topic.

Post a picture of the Biggest folder on your hard drive here!

10 long years, frig the scene anymore.

Kids think they have deep in sources at the age of 12, why bother caring when no one receives respect anymore, they assume bullcrap, but that's all they are.

RTM apps and OSes that I don't have genuine CDs of. My beta collection's about the same size so far, but again it's not all of it (genuine beta CDs not included), additionally I've stopped collecting betas.

My ISOs. There are only 15, most of them downloaded with my good old dial-up. Bonus screenshot: Every file with its size.

I think the main folder where I have all my apps installed is my biggest single folder (below left). Who's got the biggest Windows folder? - mine's pretty large these days, Vista Business x64. So many people seem to still be using XP though looking at the screenshots here, so quite a few of you will have very small Windows folders in comparison.

Not exactly.
I only got them to upload back to the FTP (you said that the GUI one was on it, but it isn't here.).

Offtopic Comment
I need the GUI'd NCLI (as it isn't anymore in SP), PM me.

:o Do you use your Windows folder for installing programs in or something?! :P I would expect Ultimate x86 to be a similar size to Business x64 otherwise, as the x64 has the System32 folder twice effectively

This is my main non-personal folder where I hold my music, video, games, apps, emulators and stuff... largest on the RAID-array.

Edit: Added comment.

I must say, my largest is most certainly my movies folder.

I have Firefly, Star Trek Movies, Star Trek The Next Generation, Deep Space 9, Voyager and Entreprise.

I mean it's no 365GB operating system folder by any means, but it sure won't back up to a DVD hehe

I recently had to format all three of my drives as all my files got infected by a virus. All i was able to save was 2gbs of my documents. For now ive cut back to my main 160gb sata drive and my vista at 7.78gb takes up the most space. Now i gotta redownload the betaarchive ftp 1 file at a time ugh.
