Re: Is Partitioning Worth it?
Partitioning is definitely worth it. Just as you said, if you get a virus and it wipes the drive that u have ur OS on, so u have to reinstall ur OS. Now if you have all ur files on that same drive u will lose all ur imp documents. BUT, if you partition, keep all ur files on a separate drive, then u wont lose anything when u reinstall the OS. Thats what i do, i have 160gb hard (2 hdd's), 3 OS's on 3 separate drives, program files on separate drives (for my most used OS, the other 2 are backups) and all files/games/downloads/movies on 4 separate drives. Wheneveri feel like i need a clean reinstall (once a year or so) i can do it freely without ever feeling like i am going to lose any imp info.
