comment How do I expand C: drive
Judging by your picture Windows is not actually installed on that drive. As you said, there is no Windows folder. Looks like there are some remnants of a previous Windows install though ($AVG, Boot, Config.Msi, $RECYCLE.BIN, System Volume Information, etc.). If you are only using that drive to store your data you can safely delete all the files/folders on that drive that you have not intentionally put there.

comment How should I choose a media type for a FreeBSD installation?
Regarding your last sentence I would say that when I start using FreeBSD I will be removing/installing packages on occasion and running a web server. It isn't going to be my daily driver, but I will be writing to disk more than I do with FreeNAS. Are you considering how dynamic/static my use of an OS is as the largest contributing factor of what drive medium I use?

comment How should I choose a media type for a FreeBSD installation?
@terdon No need to edit, I included what I wanted in my original question: If you answer anything except "A USB stick" please elaborate why FreeNAS recommends using a USB stick but FreeBSD does not.

comment How should I choose a media type for a FreeBSD installation?
@terdon techie007's explanation of why FreeNAS recommends using a USB stick doesn't seem correct as I mentioned in my comment about the FreeNAS/FreeBSD jail system. His explanation may end up being correct, but as of right now he has yet to offer any acceptable edit or counter comment to invalidate my comment or bolster his original answer.

comment How should I choose a media type for a FreeBSD installation?
Regarding your edit, I don't think that is true. With the FreeBSD jail system (which FreeNAS also uses) I can install any FreeBSD software I want to FreeNAS. The size of my install could fluctuate greatly.

comment How should I choose a media type for a FreeBSD installation?
I realize I can install the OS's on any media I want. I was going to put in my question "Please don't tell me I can install FreeNAS/FreeBSD on any media I want" but I decided not to. I can see now that I should have. Additionally this doesn't answer any part of my question.
