Is there such a thing as an optimal partition size?
I'm getting a new drive soon (another 250GB) and was considering partitioning it into 2*100GB partitions (for storage) and using the rest (32 or so GB) as my windows partition. Are there any disadvantages for having comparitively large partitions (other than possible damage due to viruses)?
Would 2*80GB, 1*50GB and 1*20GB be a better solution?
TIA for any help/advice
