addictive downloads: threat to memory

My hard drive is almost full with loads of downloads that begin once my night-surfing internet goes online. Downloading is like addiction, the more you download, the more you want to. The worst thing about any download is you don't want to erase them - though you won't know whether you are going to use it or it. I am a follower of "When in doubt, throw it out" philosophy, but still i find it hard to apply to the virtual stuffs; it's ok with tangible stuffs, though. Primarily it's because I am in Nepal, bandwidth is a valued resource. It takes time, a lot, to download and even more patience. A lot of time mean lots of - sometimes it can take days or even month.



I bought an external hard drive case for my 20GB disk, to keep backups of my precious downloaded files. Now 3GB left. Download addiction is indeed threat to beloved memory.

Virtual HDD is not appropriate for countries with bandwidth constraints. I wonder how long does it take to download 1GB data, let alone upload.
