i have a computer question. Is it bad to use up all the space of my hard drive? My hard drive isn’t very big,
I don’t know if you have to do it now, but when I was younger and drives weren’t as big as they are now, I always left 10% of the drive free for swap space. Someone who is smarter than me will probably comment on this, and help us both out.
Chiming in since I didn’t see this part said by anyone else:
If you have a Solid State Drive (SSD) instead of a Hard Drive, they frequently perform better at 50% or less space used. It’ll still perform pretty well at 10% free, but you may see a large performance difference at 51% compared with 49% or lower, depending on the exact SSD.
