SSD space question

Hello,
I Have a:

"OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX480G 3.5" 480GB SATA II MLC"

I seem to be running out of space (I think).

currently (see below)

Used space 361GB
Free space 85.5GB

How much useable space do I have left?
Is it possible to add another SSD to the existing SSD to gain mire SSD space ?
Are there larger SSDs?

Any suggestions would be helpfull.

Thanks

    I recommend using all that space exept from the last 5% of your drives space so dont use the last 25gb as it will slow your drive down. Yes you can add another SSD and I think the highest sata SSD is 480gb. There may be other drives around 500gb but just have a look around. Also you can get PCI SSD's which are extremley fast (600+mbps) at 750gb+ but some of them cost more than a GTX 690 (£1000+)
  2. You could also add a large hard drive to hold data that you don't need to load so fast.
  3. Do you have a hard drive, or do you only have a SSD? I would get a HDD and move any data and possibly some applications to the hard drive.
    There are some 1TB SSD's, but they are pretty expensive

    Here's a 600GB SSD:

  4. did you install a lot of games on that SSD? you can disable the hibernate file also.

    360gb is a lot of space used.

    you can download and run this program to help you indentify where the space is being used:

    Thank you all for your quick responses, sorry for then delay in returning your questions, out with the flu right now. Will provide more info shortly.

    I do Have 2 hard drives C:, E:(SSD)

    I am a Microsoft Flight simulator enthusiast. my SSD drive is dedcated totally too FSX (flight simulator) although many files are also installed to my C: drives as well.
    I will get more info to you shortly once my flu symptoms have calmed down with more questions and with more info.

    Once again thank you.
