I'm currently using 132G total.

CentOS 5 is using 32G and CentOS 6 is using 100G (73G for 6.3 and 27G for 

The usage always goes up when a new release comes out, and then goes back 
down when the previous release is moved to the vault.

Remember that RHEL 7 is coming out in a few months, and CentOS 7 won't be 
too far behind. When it comes out, there will be a third active release, 
so the disk usage will jump up quite a bit (7 will probably use more space 
than 6).

I would expect a full mirror (of 5, 6, and 7) to use 150-200G of disk.
