I have read quite a bit about installing Windows on its own partition so that data is not lost when reinstalling Windows. The third partition may be unnecessary but my goal was not needing to reinstall all my programs in the event I needed to reinstall Windows. I now know that many programs do not give you the option to install in a drive different from the C: drive. Next time I would only do two partitions - one for Windows and other programs and one for data. The second drive has photos, music, and video. I'm doing a large video project as a favor and it has about filled up my drives. I guess I should save the parts off to DVDs until needed to free up space on both drives.
