Hello,

On my desktop system I have two partitions. One partition is the system partition and the other is where I store all personal my data files to.

This configuration is ideal for if and when you need to format the OS partition, as your personal data files will remain intact. A lot of users do this.

I have a separate hard drive just for Windows and installed programs. (74GB Raptor).
I also have a 320GB and 750GB drive for the rest of my data. I'm thinking about getting another 750GB drive, since I only have about 100GB left on my current one.

anyway, use your second partition to store your music.
