250GB hard drive: Partition recommendations
Posted on 2004-11-04
I've just bought a spanking new PC which has a 250GB drive.
I use my PC for: general apps, playing video (not games), watching TV, recording TV, bit of vid conversion (not too much), and other general stuff.
On my old 120GB system, I have three partitions:
C: Windows - about 10GB
D: Applications - about 10GB
E: Data (video, music etc) - the rest
I found this ok with the odd problem with the C: drive getting a bit big. But I've alwasy liked the idea that most of my data was a long way away from the OS and indeed it allowed me to resintally XP several times without touching the data. Recently I've read people dismissing the idea of numerous partitions as not necessarily that useful. So what do people think?
Thanks as ever.
