Samsung NC20 netbook - hard drive partition

  User-1279308 21:38 17 Aug 2009

I read about this in a review but not sure as to the actual purpose... The NC20 comes with a 160GB hard drive, so how should I divide it during initial set-up?

Partitioning is not really required nowadas but some people do it to help separate the operating system from thier data in the vent of a crashed op system they can restore / repair the op system partition without affecting the data partition.

I have my master drive partitioned to a 20G partition for my op system (XP) and preinstalled programs.
All programs are installed to a separate partition on the same drive.
All data is save to a separate drive including My Document folder.
Both drives are backed up weekly to a third drive.

Perhaps I'm a little paranoid where my data is concerned but most of my work (lively hood)is stored on the machine.
