I am considering buying a new PC with 2 x 320Gb hard drives. What would people consider to be a suitable size for a partition to hold the operating system only on the first drive?
That's a can of worms opened :)It depends on the OS; I'll bid for 30GB if XP.
Mine is on a 20gig partition (just becoz) it allows for updates associated progs, general fenagling and stuff..
Assumming XP or Vista home10G
You will need at least 20Gb for vista.30 to 40Gb would be best.15Gb for XP.
Vista: 30-40Gb is ideal as ed-0 mentions, so you'll have 15Gb+ of free space (see below†). It occupies about 15Gb when initially installed - see click here. WinXP: 15Gb. This is what I use for XP Pro - it occupies 8.6GB at the moment, with most of my data on another partition/hard disk. G†From click here - What is required to run Windows Vista?To install and run the core functionality of Windows Vista, you need:- An 800 MHz processor- 512 MB of RAM- A 20 GB hard drive with *15 GB of free space*
I think I'll go for 40G to be on the safe side.
