Hello, i havent ever used windows 10. Last for me was vista. I built a video production comp with 2 matching 4tb hard drives and a 512gig ssd pcie. I want to set up partitions right.
How do i do that?
Here is an article that sounded like a good idea:
You are on the right track of separating your O/S from your applications. The idea is that you don't want your disk drive, by far the slowest peripheral in our PC's, serve two masters. With that thinking, having a separate drive for your assets is smart.
Here's how mine works:
Internal: Primary drive is divided into two partitions (yes, I said partitions - I am a vocal opponent to partitioning which is an artifact from the days that hard disks were getting bigger than DOS could address). The first partition is the boot partition, and the second partition is the Windows 7 System Backup partition. Secondary drive is where I put the "My Documents" and temp folders.
Externally: I use USB Docking Ports for everything else. Terabyte drives are relatively cheap, and I just dedicate a physical drive to a single project. Each project gets its own drive.
