Computer Tutorials-How To Manage Hardisk Partitition

Most of users Computer (PC) sometimes  give less attention to setting / Hard disk usage.Here are tips to regulate the partition of hard disks.

With the increasing cheapness of this device and capacity are increasing rapidly, so we must give attention to this device. Although we could divide the hard disk 500 GB Being one or two partitions (drive C: and D: drive), but I think it is not a good way.

Here are some tips from my personal experience.
There is no standard in the partition of hard drive,  this is usually based on the experiences or needs. The best way is to first determine which category will be used. Eg To Operating System, Data, Master Courses, Audio / Video and more.
Please note that the HDD 80 GB (Gigabyte) is not fully able to save data at 80 GB, as well as readable on a computer. For 80 GB HDD, usually only capable of storing data or will read a maximum of 74 GB. For 40 GB to 37 GB, 160 GB = 149 GB, 250 GB = 232, = 298 320 GB, 500 GB = 465 GB, 640 GB = 596, 1 TB (terabyte) = 931 GB and beyond. So that we can not divide into four HDD 80 GB drives with each of the same size and all reads 20 GB.

Here are examples of the distribution of 160 GB HDD (read about 149 GB), with Windows XP operating system:

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

Why the C drive measures just 20 GB? For most people, the location of the C drive as the operating system installation does not require a lot of places. For Windows XP, only need 2 GB, Office need 1 GB and the rest of other programs and usually is sufficient. So, with the small size would be easier in the care of it, such as virus scan, spyware, and defragment your hard drive.

In format the HDD, which usually measures included in MB (Mega Byte). Then the order of 20 GB HDD unreadable, so we put the size in MB must be greater than 20,000. Suppose we set 21 500 MB in size, then this measure will be read around 20 GB. Or you can also add a little for example 22 000 MB (20.05 GB unreadable). Similarly, when determining the size of 40 GB (about 43 000 MB optional). To more easily, please see

Tips to move the My Documents Location
When you open Windows Explorer then there would be My Documents directory and the default location of My Documents state this in your drive C:, complete generally in folder C: \ Documents and Settings. Save the document on the C drive in my opinion less safe, and need to be moved to the drive other than C. For example from the above example is drive E:

To change the My Documents to open in the location of the drive / folder, how to right click My Documents and select Properties and then click the Move button and select a new location where to store the documents, for example drive E:.


This method only changes the location of My Documents to the new location, so if there is already data in My Documents, it must be moved manually to the new location. Old records still exist and not deleted.
