is there a section on what partitions can be used for and a general way to set them up? sorta the pro's and con's of having more or less partitions. this tutorial mentions needing extra software to enable 4 partitions, i dont know why i would ever need more than one... id really like to learn tho!
Hello again, thank you; it's my pleasure to help people.
There are many reasons for more than one partition, one being the desire to keep all your personal data, i.e. music, docs and pics, separate from the Windows Operating System (OS) so that if the need ever arises to reinstall the OS all the data stored on another, separate partition will not be lost. Another is the ability to dual or multi boot.
