Hello Peter,

It's not just size that counts! It's disk access times and buffer if you are not running a RAM drive. As David has said elsewhere a disk with less than 100GB is quite satisfactory under most conditions if you have a two computer set-up and are not planning to leave data unprocessed..

As to the processing side - how long is a piece of string? - How much data do you want to archive or keep for periods. It all depends on how much data you are accessing and processing. You could easily get 10Gb a day of data with the basics for example. Then again you may want to store other files created by some of the imaging software, albeit these will be of lesser size.

Also make sure you have the appropriate file retention settings in the data managers to ensure you don't use up all the space on a disk!

Cheers
James
