I have a massive 70 gig HD and a smaller 5+ gig hd (most of my system files are preset on that hd). At any rate ... I hear that by partitioning your HD .. it makes it quicker and more responsive. How can I partition my 70 giger to be set up in sections for applications ... games ... performance related programs .. etc?

btw .. sorry for this double post .. this is also in the reply to the other post about partitioning HD's .. didnt know I hit post reply instead on post new thread :(

I have a laptop that I'm configuring for one of my clients and it has a 5.0 GB hard drive. The drive space right now say's it's only 2.0GB hard drive. I deleted the ext. partition in fdisk, and it used to be set up partitioned C: and a D: now there's only C:
How do I get back that extra space?

If you are installing XP on a new system (booted from the CD), it allows you to NTFS fdisk and format in one step (well almost one step), before it installs the OS.

It's really up to you, but here's how I usually partition my disk:

C: (System) @5gig
D: (Pagefile) @1gig
E: (Data) @whatever the heck is left

Like I said, it's up to you.

cheers,

:p
