Let me ask a simple question.
What should be the space to be kept free on a Portable Hard disc to keep it safe and running optimal?
Also answer the same in the case of a desktop hard disc.
Why I am asking is I have got 6 external Hard discs viz
a 1 TB Seagate HDD externally powered,
a 1 TB Western Digital My Passport USB Powered,
a 2 TB Western Digital My Passport USB Powered,
a 2 TB Western Digital Elements USB Powered,
a Seagate 2TB Backup Plus Slim USB Powered,
a 500 GB hard disc cased out of my old laptop hard disc USB Powered.
I was wondering how much Gigs should I leave free in each HDD mandatorily for optimal performance.
I am leaving a minimum 20% space in my desktop drives at all times (it should be at least 15% as per defragmentation tools).
The question is how much for my portable drives. Will it be same as desktop internal drives or should it be bit higher or bit lower?
Thank you everyone in advance for the inputs you provide.
