I compress my music library with FLAC, and noticed that a FLAC file
takes approximately half the size of the original WAV file, which means
approx 300 Mbytes (most of my albums between 200 and 400).

By the way, my hard disk is full, and I'm thinking of burning my FLACs
on DVDs, and keep high-quality OGG on my hard drive.

My 2 cents.
