c:Windows 7 rtm
d:blank(reserved for xp)
so can I rearrange it like this?
1.I experienced a partition table corruption once,and it nearly killed me.So what I want to know is could it reduce the possibility of the partition table error if I put the data in 1st partition(rather than an OS),or if it's corrupt can I still access and read the data in 1st partition?I can reinstall OS but I can't reinstall data,you know.
2.Is the 100m hidden volume of Windows 7 useful?I don't need to encrypt my files,so can I delete it?I heard that if you format it first then do the installation Windows 7 won't create the volume.
And I wanna make a dual boot,if I discard that hidden volume will the dual boot fails or what?xp is more stable and I guess I won't change it,and that's the reason I put it in 2nd partition.Windows 7 is new,so I decide to drop it to the last partition because I may format and re-install it in the future.
I plan to do the re-installation and data transfer lately,so if it's pointless and no need to do that,please tell me soon.
Lots of questions,thank you for reading.
