Dual Boot and Speed?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys this may be a stupid question, but......I'm considering resizing my NTFS partition to install Ubuntu, which I want to migrate over too for all non-gaming activities, the problem is, I only have this one little Raptor...so I guess my question is, will resizing this partition without reformatting slow or stifle performance in any way? I don't really see how it could.... but then again, I'm not sure how it's working on the technical side... If anyone has any input that'd be great.. Thanks

No, resizing the partition shouldn't hinder preformance. Just make sure to defrag the drive before you resize.

That is the most important thing you can do
