I have 1 Hitachi Deskstar 7K250, as C: drive. That's it, no other partitions. Just 1 drive. Now about a week ago, I saw a post that said something about if you partition the drive to big, the smaller files will still take up allot of space, so I'm actually wasting space by just using 1 partition on such a big drive. Is that true? If I want to add more drives later, like.. another 250GB. Is it smart to merge the two together to form a 500GB drive, if it is, how? And if it's not, how do I partition it then? The reason I only made 1 disk, is because when I download something to my desktop, I don't want to copy the file to another disk again, wasting time. I also heard that with allot of copying, you can actually make the drive slower if you do it allot. Not noticable, but over a longer period of time. What of this is true?
