A15: Running out of hard drive space

QUESTION: Is it possible that I will run out of space on my computer because of the songs in iTunes or my photographs?

ANSWER: Music, video, and photos take up much more space on a computer than documents, so it is possible to run out of space on your computer if you have a large library of songs or many albums of photos. Rather than buying a new computer, when everything else on your computer is running fine, you can buy an additional hard drive to store these things. Remember that the hard drive is a storage facility. The new added hard drive will plug into your computer and you can direct your songs and photos to it.
