I have a maxtor 200GB hdd that I'm going to install xp, as I understand it there is an amount of hdd space that will not be usable, can someone tell me what that amount is? I would like to make at least two partitions, and I need to know what to enter for the amounts for the two partitions.

Depending on what you use your computer for, you may wish to have more than two partitions to make defragging, etc. easier and faster.

Regards,
John

Hi John, thank you for the response, I read that after Rimmer had given me the link, but unless I'm missing something here it dosen't address my question regarding the amount that is not usable as it remains as a cache.

I'm not understanding the information in your posts ...

What space remaining unusable as cache?
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...
