How many partitions do you have on your hard drive(s)?

If you create only one partition on your hard drive, what you do have against creating multiple partitions, and wise versa.

ive got 2 HD's
80GB- partioned equally into 2
20GB- partioned equally into 2

The more partions u hav the less utiliation of yoiur HD space. But the less partions u hav the more cumbersome it becomes to find files.

Anusha
12-01-2006, 04:41 PM
My setups is,
C:\ == SYSTEM
D:\ == Data
E:\ == Backup
This way, it doesn't waste space.

Unless you know where you put them, having more partitions wouldn't make things easier. Folders are there for that.

Anusha
12-01-2006, 05:04 PM
You are not physically wasting any disk space. But say you have a 160GB Hard Drive with four 40GB partitions. Say, all partitions have only 3GB space left. So, you have 12GB, but only 3GB contiguous space. Say you want to copy a DVD for encoding to DivX. But you can't, because you can't find contiguous space to copy the DVD to. You have 12GB, but it's wasted. If you had 40GB and 120GB partitions, you would have 9GB left on the 120GB. See?

Ok. But what do u think about super fast hard drives. Like WD Raptor

Key Features

Killer Speed - World's fastest SATA drive: 10,000 RPM, 4.5 ms seek, 8 MB cache.

Enterprise-class Throughput - With WD's Ultra/150 Command Queuing technology that optimizes the sequence of data transfers to the hard drive from the host, resulting in higher performance in enterprise applications.

Rugged - Enterprise-class mechanical platform with high-end bearings and actuator.

Unsurpassed Reliability - 5-year limited warranty and 1.2 million hours MTBF

Anusha
12-02-2006, 07:35 PM
Still no difference between SATA and PATA. This is because the sustained sequential read/write speeds of the fastest hard drive is slower than 90MBps whereas PATA interface speed is 133MBps. PATA interface bandwidth is not yet exhausted by any drive, so they can't be slower than SATA. The difference could be less than 1%.

But it's always better to go with SATA because it's the latest technology.

To keep it easy to find programmes rather than putting all of them in just 1 disk I guess :D Less messups n ya when it's come to formatting it's easy cos u wont loose eveything. U can backup

Machan if I have another 250GB HD I partition both HD like this
30GB or more for Win VISTA , 50GB Apzz & Temp downloads ( because newest games and softwares need lots of space ) , 80GB for other stuff, and 70GB + 250GB for Multimedia and Other stuff.
I dont like lots of partitions. Because it makes very complicate.

It'll be some wat easy to locate a software and easy to manage them.
The default windoes partition is full of wisndows related stuff.
So hard to manage our files with them.

Why do you want to manage the program files? They are programs ne? I don't open the C: partitions that often. I only open it as soon as I install Windows and to get the things setup. You use shortcuts after that no?

Anusha

It won't work because most programs copy files to %WinDir%\System32 and put several hundred entries in the registry. Some work, but they are only the small programs. Most games work however.

Install them in %ProgramFiles%
Keep all your "data" files such as music, videos, pictures, documents, and even games (because they usually don't need reinstalling after a reformat) on a big partition. That's how I have them.

My system partition is 20GiB. This is for Windows, Programs and Users (I have modified names for those folders because some programs don't like having spaces in the folder names). I have all the data in the 278GiB partition. I have backup and downloads in the 160GB (149GiB) 2nd Hard Drive (1 partition on it).

But there is a catch.

You know that the fastest part of the hard drive is the front part, right? Say you have all those files in your second partition. Say it's got about 50% full and the data is in the front half of that partition. Say you are installing a new game. The game has to go after the existing data. But the latter part of the drive is slower. And your seeks will be slower if you have the pagefile in the first partition. This is problem if you don't have the right defragmenting software.

I use Diskeeper 11 and when I select automatic defragmenting and i-FAAST, it will monitor the frequently accessed files and will move them to the front of each partitions. The files that don't need frequent accesses such as music files and video files are sent to the end of the partition. This way, it doesn't slow down.

If I didn't have this defragmenter, I would also have three partitions on my 320GB. One for the System, one for Games and the other for Data.

Ok, now you seems to be the one who has the largest storage space. What's the brand and model of those 250GB hard drives? And where did you buy them from? At what price? are you using a RAIO configuration or just standalone? Tell us more.

Not 400GB Single Drive!!

Earlier I had 250 + 40 but when I changed my system I had to ditch the 40 Gig and I bought 160 Gig with my system

So now 250 + 160 = 410 Gig
