[QUOTE=Ayiramala;2505036]Well, there’s no special reason for wanting to have two or three drives other than the desire to be a little ‘organised’. When there are so many files on a single drive I thought it could be a little difficult - especially for children - to find what they want. That’s all.
By the way, my OS is WinXP SP3.
But to answer my other question - Is there anything WRONG with what I did? Do I need to change anything?[/QUOTE]
You just create folder or get smaller HDD to hold those files you don’t have to get a 500G or 1TB HDD. A simple 320G or 250G will suffice. Partition is good but you have to remember you loose storage space because of partition as well as you will need to know which partition drive the file is stored at. For my drives I create folders even though there many on there as long as the program your kids are using points to the right folder you shouldn’t have to set it again. But if you need to partition go ahead and partition it but make sure you set how big each partition is as well.
