Re: OS on a logical drive by itself?
In article <kolg4696uvlfls6imnv5s8vfftut2q40jk@xxxxxxx>,
Although some people have that point of view, I don't agree at all.
You might like to read my views on partitioning in this article I've
written: "Understanding Disk Partitioning" at
[Quoting of link content]
1. If your backup scheme is to image the entire drive, have just a
single partition (usually C:).
2. If you just backup data, set up two partitions: one for Windows and
installed application programs (usually C:), and the other for data
In my opinion, except for those running multiple operating systems, you
seldom get any benefit to having more than two partitions.
There is another backup scheme where 2 partitions is advantage:
Imaging whole system/application partition C
and backuping just part of data partition D.
