I just finished setting up a duel boot with Windows 7, and Linux mint. I plan on using Linux for financial transactions, and such, while using Windows for primarily gaming. But i had a question about having a separate partition to install games/software onto, is there a big advantage of just using C: for OS, then having all your downloads, and games in a separate partition? If so how large should the C: partition be?

Thank you very much!

I also just had a "funny" thing happen as i was setting up Windows 7, i replaced my hosts file, luckily i kept the old one, new one caused my system to unstable, would not connect to internet, and i could not delete, nor rename the new hosts file. I had to restart into safe mode to delete it, and put the old one back. Everything is fine again, but any thoughts as to why this happened? Thank you!
