      When you install your O/S do you partition the Hard Drive so much space for O/s and so much for everything else ?

      I used to but I haven't done this since I got my laptop. It is a great idea to have it partitioned into two though so you can store your backups and such onto the second partition and re-install on the other half. I used to use it alot when I had my drive partitioned.

      I have 99.9GB for Windows and 831GB which I label Downloads.
      When I reinstall windows I just move favourites etc across to downloads and back afterwards.
      Everything I do in office is saved to downloads anyway.
