10% might work for you but it definitely does not
work for me.  I have a 1tb drive and 348 gb free
space.  Most operations run slower than normal.
I deleted about 150gb of music to bring it up to
350gb because it ran too slow to use.  Now it
runs fast enough to use but I still have a lot of
wasted time.  I had a 350gb drive and had the
same problems way before 35gb free space.
