JUst ordered a new Acer laptop. It is yet to arrive but has a 160GB HD with XP Windows Media Centre (C Drive partition I guess) and the Acer tools on a hidden partition. From the other Acer laptops I have seen I will want to create partitions for my music, videos etc. Is Acronis DD10 likely to be the answer to what I need. I'm a little curious about the hidden partiton and how this will affect my attempts to create any partiton on unused free space. Also, with the C Drive being the only visible drive will DD10 create extra partitions safely without corrupting the XP OS?
