    Size of Systempartition-Winxp

    Hello

    we discussed size of systempartion where programs will be integrated.
    So i have set 37gb but not only that.
    I created a backup-partition of the same size.

    I see now i have 21gb left on both partitions. I dont install that much and big programs.
    How about reducing both by 10gb leaving 27gb?

    I am asking since two of my drives are 320 gb only.
    it will only by my next powerful pc to use larger drives.

    2. Is there a rule which size must have recicle bin? If its too smalle, what problems could occur?
    thanks a lot friends.

    10 GB will work for C: using XP. 20 works better for a longer run.

    I change the size of the recycle to something smaller on C:\, the rest I just do away with.

    Will set 20gb since 16 is already used.
    partition magic is working fine. Was a bit tricky to find out the procedure.

    Will set 3gb for recycle bin on c.

    Recycle, I use 500 MB, my preference is all that is.

    Yes, PM will work with XP, just do not try it on Vista or Win 7. You can , but the problems that will cause are right nasty. Yep, have to do a clean install afterward.
