    The amount of the partition can be anything. if its already partitioned you cant change the size but you can always delete a partition and create a new one if you have the software. but if you partition, dont leave to little space on C becuase all installed programs go on C. at least 10G should be left on C. to see how much space you have on each drive, click on MY Computer. on each drive just click once do display info on your space.

    hi, that's not significant if yours is a single processor or twin processor or center 2 duo or quad center or any element else. there is not any shrink to the dimensions of the tricky disk you need to use with it. on your guidance, i'm using a single processor equipment pentium 4. on the time of scripting this I even have related a 1TB western digital tricky disk to my equipment and engaged on it. stable success.

    well you can have a single partition of wait for it........40GB , but the OS will use some of that so you would be left with about 37gb.
