Hard Drive Patitions for OS, Programs, Data
Posted on 2004-04-28
I recently installed a second hard drive in my Dell desktop system. The old HD is 13 gig, the new one is 60. I run WIN 98 SE. The Dell is over 4 years old, and I would like to do a "fresh" install on the new HD, then wipe out the old one and use it for data. I have read that it is a good idea to have separate partitions for data, OS, and programs, and would like some advice on how to set things up.
What exactly should be in the OS Directory? All drivers? MS Internet Explorer? Should anything else be installed there? Some programs, such as Windows Media player, seem to end up with the OS.
