On a new Dell Studio xps with a 1 TB hard drive, is it feasable to partition the hard drive as follows: C for OS only, D for programs only, and E for all data. If so, how much room should be allocated to the OS partition?
you can choose how to partition the C: (primary) drive accordingly, i wud opt for 30~40GB jus for windows 7 if it were a 32 bit installation, but i have 100GB jus for C: and i run a 64 bit ultimate edition. I also use photoshop for my work and the fun thing with CS4 is that u get added performance and editing features with a graphic card... but they should be compatible with CS4. Heres a list of those supported -
and yeah it is feasible as the drive in which ur OS is installed tends to grow in size due to updates, then comes the programes that you need to install. THEN u have ur data...if i were you i'd invest a lil and get another HDD for the images as u'l never know whn the HDD mite crash or mayb jus burn them on DVD/bluray media
