    EDIT:

    Additional question:
    How many partitions do you have on your main drive, and what do you use them for?

    errm..... Netryder? think u have to explain that one. lol

    15 + 75 = 90 ...... i'm guessing you mean 15 GB and 65 GB?

    anyway. i'm using a Seagate 120GB 8MB cache

    partition 1 = 80GB (Windows XP Pro and programs)
    partition 2 = 30GB (backup and downloads)

    Hahah, sorry about that. Was in a hurry to leave for class.
    Yes, I did mean 15+65. I'll correct it in the original post. [​IMG]

    and i'm kinda getting the feeling that someone's gonna ask me "why did you make your OS and programs partition so much bigger?", and the reason i did that..... i don't care about what programs i installed. lol. the only backup i've made as of right now is right after i get the very few programs i like to have on my PC on it, such as mIRC and all my required drivers, stuff like that.

    120 GB WD 7200 8mb cache

    partition 1 - 10gb - system and 'office type programs"
    partition 2 - 47gb - games and all other programs
    partition 3 - 47gb - bulk storage, movies, old versions of programs, updates, etc
    partition 4 - 7gb - fixed size pagefile and room for a DVD burn file

    The second 120 gb drive is an image of the first I backup every 2 weeks and then remove physically for safe keeping.
