View Full Version : 2nd HD, where to move?

03 March 2003, 03:57 AM
just picked me up a 120gig'er and wondering, what to move to where.

i have Win2k on my C:, so ALL other programs go on the new one. right? this way, they will run smoother since its not on the same disc as the OS. right? also, can i keep little apps like Winamp and Quicktime on the C:? also, any other tips/tricks?

thanks in advance

that's a lot of space.... i can't really even figure out how to partition that without wasiting too much. =D Generally speaking, with that much space, it seems wasteful to use both drives. Just use one, it's easier to manage in terms of electricity consumption. and if ur not a power user, more power to u. Only people that need super speedy computers for rendering worry about multiple partitons. For that 120GB drive, I would recommend the following:

5GB: Temp files and scratch disk
10GB: Applications
10GB: Games
45GB: Multimedia Files
45GB: Work files

Good luck figuring out what to do with all that space. =D
