I understand that puttin all of your my documents folder onto and external hard drive will make your computer run faster, but if i put all of my documents onto a separate partion do the same. I am running windows xp pro and have a 100Gb hard drive.
Please try to answer the question and dont just recommend and external hd straight away. I dont mean to sound pushy.

Thanks for all help

*I understand that puttin all of your my documents folder onto and external hard drive will make your computer run faster*

That's not correct - it'll run at the same speed - but might take an almost unnoticeable time longer to load some things from disk.

*if i put all of my documents onto a separate partion will it do the same*

That will make no difference at all.

I don't think that putting your "My Documents" folder in a separate partition, or on an external hard drive, will make any difference to your pc's speed at all.

Where did you get the info from?

Moving the pagefile to a seperate (not external) hard drive will speed it up.
