Re: Please help me set up my hard drive partitions

Yeah I've read to run two OS's for each task at hand. One for recording studio and one for designing... but what about gaming? and use a totally separate HD for all file storage. What the file storage HD work with both OS's? A bit confusing and I dont want to buy another win7x64 pro key. :(

How should I partition my hard drive? Or shouldnt I?

Should I partition it and how? I've seen some people have like 10-15 different partitions for things which say the reason is for defragment purposes of certain drives and incase one fails others will still be in tact? For instance. On one computer I do recording audio, bands, rappers, etc, mixing, e...

When I'm done gaming, I often forget to bring the RPM back down to earth, so Ill be sitting there and about 10 min later think to myself..wtf is taht noise...
