Hard Disk Partition Tips

Hard Drive is the most part of computer. hard drive function for storage area. sometime people use this storage without partition. for example one hard drive has capacity 250GB, they use all in one partition include operating system. if they had problem with the operating system may be they may loose thier data if only has one partition.

one of solution to cover that problem is
make two or more partition......

The division of the hard drive does not have specific standards, this is usually based on experience or needs.
The best way is to first determine the category that will be used. For Operating System For example, Data, Master Program, Audio / Video and more.

Operating System For example, Data, Master Program, Audio / Video and more.


Please note that the HDD 80 GB (Gigabyte) is not fully able to save as much as 80 GB of data, as well as when in my computer. For 80 GB HDD, usually only able to store data or legible maximum about 74 GB. For 40 GB become 37 GB, 160 GB = 149 GB, 250 GB = 232, 320 = 298 GB, 500 GB = 465 GB, 640 = 596 GB, 1 TB (terabyte) = 931 GB and beyond. So that we can not share the HDD 80 GB drive with a 4 each the same size and all of my 20 GB.

Now Windows XP Following the example of 160 GB HDD (legible around 149 GB), with operating system Windows XP

  • C Drive: 20 GB (Label "WinXP", to install the Windows XP operating system and other programs)
  • D Drive: 40 GB (Label "Master", to store various master's programs before the install)
  • E Drive: 40 GB (label "Data", to store data or documents)
  • F Drive: 49 GB or the rest (Label "Media", to store audio files and various Video)

Why drive C size only 20 GB? For most people, the location of drive C as the operating system installation does not require a lot of places. For most Windows XP only 2 GB, 1 GB of Office and the rest in the form of other programs and usually is sufficient. So with the size of a small akan easier in maintenance, such as when a virus scan, spyware, defragment hard drives more quickly and more

HDD formatting, size is usually included in MB (Mega Byte). To be legible and HDD of 20 GB, the size of which we include in the MB must be greater than 20,000. If we specify the size 21,500 MB, then this will be my size around 20 GB Or less can be added such as 22000 MB (20.5 GB legible). Similarly when determining the size of 40 GB (43,000 MB of optional).
