Re: How do I partition a Hard Drive and why should I do so?
Dont store too much on your os partition. Store multimedia, programs, and what not on the blank partition. This prevents windows from having to sort through all of your junk in order to load necessary components. You only need to partition a little section for the os. Unless you are a neat freak. If so, you can have one partition dedicated to music, one to movies, one to pictures, and so on. That, however, is unnecessary.
