I originally had a 150GB VHDD ready but now I just hit a storage crisis, is 100GB enough?
Also the 150GB VHDD is slightly buggish... Might need to reinstall it.

For building kernels only. is 100GB enough?

Yeah totally. I would feel confident downloading CM 11 (ROM, Kernel and CWM recovery) on half of that.

Thanks for the swift reply, its just because quite some time ago I heard you need like a few hundred to build a ROM and more if you want to build from several sources.

Thanks again.

I can't remember the exact sizes as I broke my CM 11 repo yesterday so 'its currently doing a repo sync right now. I use a 240GB SSD so I know the concerns of space when building.

I have both the AOSP and CM 11 repo sync'd to my SSD. The AOSP repo is just under 22 GB. I would always make sure I have double the space the repo takes to build into as the out directory can get quite big, but it wouldn't surpass it. I doubt it would pass 10 GB for a full AOSP ROM but to be fair, I haven't counted the space since Gingerbread so don't quote me on that
