Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 notebook XP Pro SP2, using TI9.03677. I have a Travelstar 40gb 4200 speed HDD. I am getting ready to replace the drive with a Travelstar 80gb 7200 speed HDD. The old drive has only one partition, I plan on partitioning the new 80gb into several partitions. My question is; is there an advantage in making D partition for just the page file? I also plan on making E for data only. I know I will have to clone the new drive to C first using TI9. Thanks in advance, Becky ps If anyone has swapped drives in an Inspiron, are there any thing I need to watchout for?
