Hi!

I have a MAXTOR 7200rpm/ATA133 20GB.
I have only one partition(C) created, totally 20GB capacity.
What do u think?
Should I create more partitions?What size should have the new partition?

My system is a CYRIX MX PR233, 64MBRAM, windows98.

Thank you!

That depends on what you do with a computer. I would make C: 4 to 8 GBytes for Windows 98 and make the other partition the rest of the drive. The result will be a faster C: drive and one that does not take a long time to defrag. There are programs that can shrink the partition (see http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/hd/cpyhd/index.html). Otherwise you will have to reinstall (http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/software/windows/upgrade/intro.htm) everything. Both are risky with respect to any data you value.
