My sister bought a new external hard disk(1TB Western Digital My Passport) for me
. This is my first hard disk so I want to know how many partitions should I make in it. What is the ideal number? Should I format it before using? What should be the ideal allocation unit size?
I want to back up everything that is on my PC. I have a 250GB hard disk on it that is almost full so I was thinking of making one partition of that size but I am not sure
please suggest. And I will keep adding photos,music,movies,games and other random stuff to it. So please suggest what should I do.
