    I want to reformat my harddisk (13 G). What is the best thing to do?
    My idea was the following:
    OS(XP) 3G
    The rest 9,5G
    Swap partition 500MB

    Is this a good idea? I've heard that with NFTS you don't have to make partitions anymore.
    Any comments? Does anybody has a Swap partition? And if you do, what size dit you make it?
    The exact size as the swapfile itself or a bit larger? :rolleyes2

    I've heard that havin' a separate partition will be slightly faster but I havn't tested it myself (never felt the need). I myself make a C: drive of 4-5GB and install XP and Office into that and let Windows manage the rest as it's swapfile with all other programs and files stored on another partition. ;)

    Why do ya only have a 13GB hard drive though? :?:
