Hd Question

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have my 160 Maxtor HD

If i partition it after slaving it to my 80 on my HP, how much should i partition for music.

I would just want 2 partitions...

1 for music

1 for when i unslave it, and install windows ( when i get money to build my own PC)

Just want estimates, and thoughts...

Extra partitions you say? Ok tell me

Personally at least 3 partitions

1. 15g Windows xp

2 60 gig Music

3. the rest Programs and files

maybe allow a fourth for linux dual boot if you are adventurous

Oh baby...:)

If you have a program like partition Magic, you can just make two equal partitions now and then repartition the left over spac later or merge them togethor.

I usually leave a 10G partion for my OS and programs and the rest is data.
