Upgrading hard disk depends upon usage. If usage in near to full size of hard disk it is recommended to upgrade it.May be your friends need more space in their system .

My previous computer had a 80GB hard disk. When I bought a new one early this year I bought a 500GB drive. I have a lot of movies, software and songs in my hard drive and it is almost full now. Occasionally I burn a few movies in my DVD. Thus I clean up some space for future use. All in all I am quite happy with my hard disk. I do not need to upgrade it in the near future.

upgrading the hard disk is if we need a space where such relief because it was almost full, but must be tailored to the funds we have. Better not forced, I often watch movies with a copy to the hard disk and then delete it when I have done watching.

If you enough for space hard disk you have now, so don't upgrade, but if yowitr need for space is not enough with your current hard disk so just upgrade it :p but with a cheaper price for DVD-R blank and DVD-RW, so just burn all files that you not need, then delete 'em form your hard drive. But if me personally I'll upgrade just in case if one day I need for something that need much hard drive space.

Upgrading hard disk per se, I don't find it to be much important. On the ongoing days, it's plenty easy to add one or two HDDs into a computer and have all of them up and running, so there's room for expansion, rather than upgrading. In itself, if you look at it, purchasing additional hard disks can be an upgrade over all since you can use current systems to get a performance improvement out of that. You can have your OS and programs in one HDD, store the usual stuff (Games and frequently used information) on another and have yet another hard disk where you put the more "idle data" along with the Virtual Memory's swap file. This way you have a larger collective amount of space to stuff things in, plus, you can get an improvement in your computer's speed since what would be an otherwise idle disk is still holding some of your data -AND- managing Windows' virtual memory for example, which allows other drives to work on their own stuff. Still, I believe there is a time in that people just need to learn to delete stuff. I mean, seriously, when people tell me they need 2 HDDs of 1 TB each I just have to ask "Why!?" and one time too many the answer is that they need the space to store all the downloaded musics, movies, games, etcetera. Why do people want that much stuff? Sometimes it's movies they won't watch, they watch only once, games it's the same thing... why fill up hard drives with these things? I'm sure you can't like -all- of it, nor you have time to see/play everything. If you like something so much burn it to a DVD then. Personally, on my work computer I have a 120GB and a 320GB hard drives. That's 440GB of storage space that I doubt I'll fill up.. and if I ever come close to that it's only a reminder that I need to get off my butt and start purging stuff because hard drives have just been growing in size by -leaps- and people seem to be trying their best at filling them up somehow like if they have to. I still remember when a 200 -MB- HDD was huge. Granted, these days even the smaller drives are like .. 160GB. For more 5 or 10 dollars you can get one twice the size... so it's understandable that people prefer to make an extra little investment since it's quite worth the bang for the buck. For example, I have a "Lab computer" that's mean for general efficiency so I went ahead and grabbed a pair of twin HDDs for a RAID 0 system. I ended up with 1 terabyte of space that I'll never use entirely. But why 500GB HDDs instead of 320 of 160GB ones? Because it was 8 euros more. So, upgrading? No, not needed, except if the HDD is falling old and I believe that its time may be coming and I want to safeguard my data and keep my machine always up and running. Otherwise, needless and pointless.

If the usage is not in full size of hard disk, we don't need to upgrade it. I've been use my 80Gb hard disk for 4 years and now I'm not planing to upgrade it. I don't think upgrading it is necessary.

Yes as circumestences are grow day by day..and so computer are also a need of person.. and if it is no have good configuration..then it will not working properly..because day by day..those software are made whose are required heavy configuration.. so now hard disk is also a good capability..because if you have bigger ability hard disk..like 160 GB or 320 GB..then it is good for us..because we can store a huge collection of data.. and we don't feel crisis of hard disk..or lowe space problem..

It's important if you eat a lot of space.

I personally think that improving your HDD is important these days as technology is increasing and the need for more space for collections and important data gets higher. I now have a 1TB drive that I use and even that is going to need more space soon, as my need for more gets higher, but for now I expect it to suffice. For others I would say to have no less than 500GB as even that soon gets filled up these days, so keeping on top and adding/investing in a new drive is essential. Definately something that I keep on top of, as everything is becoming digital these days and physical copies become things of the past.
