Hello, I recently purchased an Asus g73jw-a1 with two ST9500420AS hardrives, each with about 460 Gb of space. My laptop came from the company with four partitions across both disks. These partitions, I'm sure, are typical, but I will list them anyways:
- 116 Gb (2 Gb free)
- 327 Gb (0 used)
- 232 Gb (0 used)
- 232 Gb (96 Gb free) - Used for Windows Backup
Now, I am not experienced in the slightest with matters involving logical hard drive space, so my question is what are the ramifications if my OS drive fills? Also, what can I do to optimize my performance (Like, should all my current files be on the C: drive? I've researched, and as I understand, increased partition size translates to increased seek time and greater wear and tear on the hard ware)
Keep in mind, I may need explicit instruction, because all i really know how to do (not that I've done it, but I believe I can figure it out) is reassigning space to different partitions, but I feel that there is a better solution.
Thanks, Andrew R.
Edit: I would also like to avoid BIOS tweaks and that kind of thing. I'm just curious about optimization by... non invasive (?) means like appropriate allocation of files to their respective partitions.
