Bram: With Partition Magic you definitely can re-size NTFS partitions. It's no problem at all, I have done it numerous times. I love Partition Magic for this and many other reasons. Partition Magic is one of those tools that you may only need once in a great while (unless you're a full-time service tech), but when you need it it's awfully nice to have available. Lene: I see nothing wrong with either re-sizing the partition or leaving it as it is. As Bram basically said, it depends on how you use your computer. By default, Windows will install software to your C:\Program Files directory, which is most likely on the same partition. The question is, will you have enough room or will you always install your programs to another partition? Also, by default the Windows "swap file" will be created in the root of your boot directory, and that is also a consideration because not having enough room for that will impact performance. I suggest using PM to create a partition for the swap file on a physically seperate drive from your boot drive, if you have a physically seperate drive to create a partition for this.
