Should I create a partition and if so what size.
Oct 10, 2011, 3:43 PM
Hi, I am new to writing on forums so please forgive me if I am not doing this right.
I have just built my first home build pc.
I didn't partition my 1tb hard drive when I installed my upgrade win 7 ( I had to change some reg settings to allow it to clean install using the upgrade disk)
Should I partition my drive or reinstall and create a new partition .
If so how much space should I give it.
I was thinking 100gb as I will probably only have a few game and programes on this machine. 4/5 games like dues ex and bf3 and photo shop and lightroom may be some others.

you dont have to reinstall windows
you can go into device manager and change the partition size while windows is running
set the c drive to 200-300gb
