Just bought Partition Magic 8.0. It seems to me that, given the large hard drives one has today, it would always be adventageous to place the operating system on one drive, programs on a second, and data on a third, and maybe even a fourth for a backup copy of the operating system. Most of the computers I work on run Windows XP, but there are also still some WIN98 and ME.
1. Would you agree? Are there drawbacks to doing this?
2. Is there any cookbook approach to laying out partitions like this using partition magic?
