I am intending to reformat my PC and wonder if it would be more sensible to create a partition on my hard drive for the windows operating system leaving the rest of the drive free for files programs etc. Can anyone point me to a tutorial or such detailing how I should approach this. The hard drive is 500GB and I would particularly like to know how big a partition is needed for the Win7 OS?. Is this a difficult process to do for someone with reasonable PC skills but certainly not an expert?.
