I partitioned my hard drive into multiple partitions. I have windows and a few other programs installed on my C: drive. Now i want to restict all access to that drive so that nothing gets into the important files. Any help or good reading would be much appreciated!

Re: partitions
No, it won't allow you to install programs without the C drive

Re: partitions

Re: partitions
Even linux needs a hard drive. If you have another hard drive (D or what ever for example) you can use that one as your main hdd
