New Build - HDD Partition Tags: New Build Partition Hard Drives New Build Systems Last response: March 3, 2013 2:04 PM in Systems Share Diverskii March 3, 2013 11:33:19 AM Hi, I'm building my first new build for gaming. I'm going for a 1 or 2TB HDD and would like some advice on how to partition it? (I'm not getting an SSD due to costs, so can't have a boot SSD) I'd like a partition for the OS (Windows), but I then don't know what to do with games/programs and then files. Should games/programs go with the OS or with files? Also, how much should I partition? Thanks, Connor More about : build hdd partition crewton March 3, 2013 1:12:45 PM I'd keep all your programs and games on another partition. Put 100GB for your OS and then the rest for the rest.
