Notebook - Althea
Desktop - DireWolf (ssd sys drive), Media (itunes library), Programs (2tb drive for ... programs)
HTPC - Ripple (ssd sys drive), Media Drive (3tb for TV Shows/DVD rips), Movies (3tb for BD rips). The "Movies" drive came around after I ran out of room on the "Media Drive"...I really do not feel like renaming it now and possibly breaking something.
freenas- backup (for all non media related backups), Media (backup of all Movies/Music/TV Shows...mix of hds equaling approx 7tb)

C:\ - Local Disk
E:\ - New Volume

I've got mounted network drives, but they're kinda irrelevant. Public and Downloads for the insatiably curious.
