I have seen several ways to partition, but I am not sure what the best way to partition my main drive. Currently my set up is: Dell laptop Inspiron 8600 with one, Drive C is 40gb one partition. It contains all my operational programs, the os (XP Pro SP2), and most of my data. D is my CD writer. I also have a usb 160gb drive partitioned as E and F. E is 29gb and holds my photos and uninstalled program files I have down loaded. F is 119gb for backups. What is the best way to partition my C drive? Leave it the way it is or divide it up? If I divide it what is the best way and how many gb per partition.
