Hello, I was wondering if order of partition creation determined where the partition is placed on a hard drive ie. if I used XP boot disc to make multiple partitions, the first partition I make (C) would be on the outer edge of the disk while the next partition (D) would be in the middle of the disk and the third (E) would be on the inner radius of the disk? I want to make my pagefile on a separate partition from my boot drive so I don't have to worry about fragmentation. If order of partition creation DOES determine placement on drive, wouldn't it be best to make a 4 gb C drive and place the pagefile there while installing XP on the D drive? Would I also then not have to worry about using a special defrag program to move the pagefile to the edge of the disk since the pagefile is in a partition that's restricted to the outer disk edge? Thanks!
