Windows 7: Will a 64gb SSD be big enough for...

@Wishmaster, the only programs that I use on this PC are general Operating software, Anark Total Media, Procon, TS3, Firefox, and Office. Office I will install on my secondary, as it is large and I don't use it often. All of my docs, movies, movies and pictures will be stored on that drive as well. The final drive will be used for imaging of the Primary and Secondary.

@WHS Snip attached

Indeed, there is a lone dynamic partition. How did you manage that.

The only way I know how to fix that is with Partition Wizard 4.2. (an old version). You can download the .iso from Gregs skydrive ( pw422 ). Burn that to disc and go from there.

PS: Don't install Office on a spinner. That would be ashame. Word or Powerpoint are so much faster from the SSD. I have Office on all my 6 SSDs and half of those have only 60GB.

Okay, I will try your suggestion.

How big is a current final install of 2010 Pro?

I have 2007 and that is 335MB in Program Files. Add a few registry entries and .dlls, then it is 400MB at the most.

okay, well I will install that as well on the ssd.

Everyone, please understand, as soon as I can, I will be ordering two Kingston HyperX 240gig ssd for Primary drives and use two spinners for imaging and backup. This is just temporary.

Hmm, that is strange. It does not have to work with anything. Just with the NTFS file system.

1. do you have Windows server
2. did you boot from the CD

Something is making PW think it is Server edition which requires its own PW version.

Try the installed PW app which we've also archived for use here: partition wizard 4.2 free.zip - Windows Live

Thanks to Jonathan and SIW2 for hosting these.
