Hi Noam,

one thing that comes into play when considering how much space should be left free is depending on how big the data chunks you dump onto the drive will be.

If you have only a lot of smaller file chunks on the HD (say up to 100MB-300MB) and you still have several GB free then the chances that a file of the same size will become fragmented is small, however if you have lots of big files on the HD and you throw on more big files then there's a very good chance they will be fragmented slowing down read/write operations.

Hope that makes sense!

André
