I am new to disk partitioning and was wondering why I would ever want to create an Extended partition rather than a Primary one. If I just want 2 or 3 extra partitions for things like data, music, video files etc then does it matter what type of partition I choose?
Obviously I don't understand what each do, and what benefits there may be of one over the other.
Also ..... how much Primary partition disk space should I allocate for windows XP Pro system files (Drive C)? Should I use the C drive for applications or use a separate partition to install these?
