And I make this recommendation
This recommendation — simply buying another drive and not caring about disk space, you mean? Tempting, but not all the world's a business. This is actually just for a personal project that won't leave my own hard drive. (So I'm loath to spend any money on this, really.)
And it's my own hard drive, chronically short on space, that I was concerned about. But you're welcome to buy me a new one! ;)
(That said and jokes aside, I do appreciate that you took the time to reply; thanks for that. You got a +1 from me at least.)
EDIT: s/loathe/loath/, thanks golux.
