I take it by 'actual' you mean 'current' or 'up-to-date'.
20 GB might be a little too much for TOS or MagiC, as TOS 4.xx can
only address partitions up to 1 GB in size. You /could/ have 20 of
these, although some file selectors will not show them as they only
cover devices A: to P: Also, with MagiC (and perhaps also MiNT),
U: is reserved for the system and it is usual to use Z: for a
CD-ROM, so there are just about enough letters available!
Note that you don't have to use 2.5" drives - you can use 3.5"
which are generally much cheaper. I put an IBM DTTA-350640 3.5"
drive in mine. There is just enough room, but you need an adapter
for connection, available from Mario Becroft in New Zealand or
Abingdon Synthesis Projects in England - contact address is
the power supply, which is a normal HD 4-way cable and not part of
the main ribbon lead that is used for 2.5" drives.

HDDRIVER is far the best one going. You can download a demo from
Uwe Seimet's website http://www.seimet.de and he sells german
versions. If you want it with an English manual (by yours truly),
