Hi Guys, Santa left me a new PC, stingy 'erbert made it a relatively low spec but cutback I guess.
It had a 1Tb HD with no OS and using the MoBo graphics/sound ect.
To light it up I installed an old drive with W7 on it just to get going so I now have a 150Gb with OS and a 1Tb blank.
I then installed W7 on the big drive as my old storage drive needs to have its files, music movies etc installed on new machine.
Basically I have now a dual boot system.
Will take out small drive, put storage drive in temporarily and then boot with big drive OS and move stuff across onto new PC and then put storage back into old PC to allow it to be sold.....And breathe.
After going around the houses my question is instead of having an OS on a full 1TB drive I thought I would partition the OS into a minimum space and keep stored files seperate.
I see terms like "Shrink volume etc and am afraid of...................everything really.
If I keep the OS on a small partition then it keeps them and files apart and would allow for dual boot after small herd drive then returns so I would have a 150 and a partitioned 1Tb
Sorry to be long winded guys.
I would be using Partition Magic or anything you suggest.
Bless you for your patience
