    Hard disk partition in XP

    Here is my question?
    What is the interest or disadvantaged to partition your hard drive?
    If it is worth the time, how to remove without any?
    Thank you

    Re: Hard disk partition in XP

    Since Windows XP, the NTFS 4.0 and Windows 2000, the system is more fragmented, it is highly advisable to have as defragment did with Windows 98, because your file system is initially set at the time of installation will be moved And perhaps even at the end of the disc when they were well positioned to start ...

    SWAP by putting on an extended partition, the system requires you to do readings records on the same disc and at the same time is not only stupid, but quite contrary to the goal! It kills me to see things like this today .... Sorry guys, you pay for all others

    Re: Hard disk partition in XP

    Hello,

    Other interests: partitioning the data on the system partition and personal data elsewhere. The advantage is twofold:
    - Do not have to reinstall any disaster,
    - Not to risk losing everything but it does not prevent backups!

    The separation may even be pushed beyond relocating the Windows swap file, temporary files, Internet cache on other partitions. It can play on the access speed but it will also surely on the rate of fragmentation. By relocating so, the system will be much less fragmented so all will run faster.

    Since you are so talented that, we thank you for explaining how the NTFS file system is that the MFT, the EFS, ESENT and what is a sector, a cluster .... Then explicates you how the system organizes your fichers file on disk and to indicate how Parameter to avoid making non-contiguous files? Saying that it is false is too simple my friend, you must substantiate your claims to be credible, what you seem to forget
