what would be the optimal HD partition configuration?
Posted on 2002-06-28
I am going to be purchasing one of the new performance Maxtor drives, a 60GB one.
I heard from some people that if you keep your partitions small, then you will have better performance since it will take the computer less time to retrieve the information that you want.
So, would my computer be faster if I were to make a 10GB partition for system and programs, then another 10-20GB partition for games and another one for Misc stuff?
would splitting it up this way make it faster, or should I just make a really big partition for everything all together?
If it is any concern, I am on windows XP pro
thank you in advanced for your help,
