helps to rearrange my hdd

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey guys, need advice now
I have 1TB HDD

my setup now is:
C : system + software + page file etc 100GB
D : games + download file + storage (document,music,software) 300GB
E : storage (installer game) 600GB

What if I want to move games + download file from D to C, so my D drive will be purely storage, is it optimal??? (C partition is the fastest part right???)

and maybe if I buy a new hdd, is it better if i move the game to the new drive? (I read somewhere in the net, to separate OS and game in different drive for optimal performance)

when you make partitions it allows you to read form the disk on the outside.. well controll whats on teh outside. thus reading and writing are faster because the head doesnt have to move asfar. However its not a big diffrence the amount of time you would gain is so close to null its not even funny. If you want your games to run faster pic up a 120gb ssd you can get them for 150 or less on sale and install os and games to it and storage on the 1tb. This will give oyu the best performance

wow, very fast response, thanks
so it's better to leave it as it be now, right??

I'm just thinking to maximize this HDD, to read and write proccess will often occur in C, and D + E only for read only, hope for long-term storage and minimize file corruption (CMIIW, just my thought)

i dont think c partition is a significant faster partition how it may 1-2% faster than the other partition in loading games due to nearest access of the system files

however you can bring an ssd if you could and move windows+games to that and move downloads to any other drive

its wont make to much of a diffrence.. honestly jsut leave it teh way it is.... save up grab yourself a decent ssd and you will be shocked at how fast it runs. Then if you want you can always partition the 1tb into say to 450gb ones and raid them?
