    The amount of free space isn’t going to be an issue for you unless it drops below 5 to 10GB of available free space.

    If you’re asking if a larger harddrive makes your computer faster, it doesn’t. However, a newer hard drive may have a faster read/write time, allowing it to load data quicker.
