I took PS to be meaning: it performs better w/ it's Scratch Disk on a different physical drive than the application itself
. Not it & the Windows Temp folder being on diff physical drives - so I think
each being on a diff partition is ok.
Ideally 1 partition splitting 1TB into one 131GB "piece" & an 800GB "piece". Initially I thought the larger archive data partition would rarely need defragging but
w/ the frequently written to Temp or Scratch Disk on it that would not be the case.
I need a diff program to do the partitioning because for some reason Shrink Volume will only allow me to split it roughly in half (inexplicably).
