I wanted to try doing this, but I'm not sure if it will work correctly so I wanted to ask first. Is it possible to format my hard drive, make a 4GB partition and just install windows on that, but put Program Files and My Documents on a different partition? So the windows partition would just be the operating system and thats all. So it would be easier to clean up and if i need to reinstall windows again, I don't have to worry about my programs or other files, i can just install windows on that partition again....
I'm assuming if I had to reinstall windows, some of my programs on the other partition would need to be installed again since they need to put things into Windows folders. However can this be done? is it wise to do? or will it just end up being a headache?
