I've now got a huge 1.5TB disk as a data disk in my desktop machine.
It's dual boot - though I almost always use Ubuntu not Vista.
However as Ubuntu reads and write to NTFS but windows cant write to EXT3
I guess I shall format it as NTFS.
And how to partition it?
In the past when I split up huge hard drives into smaller partitions
I found it a pain when each had a bit of free space and I wanted to cram
something else on-
better to have just one big partition with one bit of free space.
That's when 20GB was huge.
But what advice do you HLUGers have on partitioning for me?
