I think I missed Bram's post. Anyway, I'm sorry I forgot to mention this, but I am running FAT32. I thought you couldn't run Win98SE in NTFS (you might be able to using Partition Magic, I'm not sure). I also think I remember that with NTFS you get greater security and it manages files better. Well, it's too late, anyway, I don't want to have to format again. Ron, I always save to the larger hard drive (which is the default C:). I constantly remind my sisters that if they want to download anything, they have to save it to either the C: or D: (the external hard drive). As for the swap file and PM, I think I read in the user manual for PM8 that it doesn't partition external drives? Or maybe I'm thinking removable media? What are my other options? I deleted all the backup for C:(98SE) that was on the D: (XP), but I see that there is a Program Files folder as well that has IE as well as other folders. If I move that to the C folder, all I would have to do is update desktop icons and startmenu items? I think moving that whole folder (Program Files) might give me extra room, especially since when I do Disk Cleanup (every night for D), a lot of files are in Temp Internet. What do you think? Thanks for your help! Ron Allen <chizotz@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: 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.
