Disk Management - Would like a Scheme 2 better than #1, where,
Scheme 1 = 1 HDD and 2 partitions:
i) labeled Q: Drive = hidden partition of ~ 40 GB, with the Recovery System, ii) boot C Drive partition on Windows 7 with the remaining huge space, + iii) NEW System Drive (wasn't there in the beginning), might have been a Trial Backup I made... (1,17 GB ?), WHILE,
Scheme 2 = Same ONLY HDD + a 3rd Partition*, but,
KEEP i) labeled Q: Drive hidden partition, with the Recovery System (untouched and USABLE) In case I'd need to re-install the Win 7 at a later time, I wouldn't compromise my Data Files, because I would have left them there iii) (below) / KEEP, BUT Re(duce)-Size ii) boot C Drive partition on Win 7, from 450 to 50 GB (for Win 7 + Apps), &
ADD *iii) the remaining and fresh unallocated 400 GB space left to a new labeled D: new Partition, where I would leave my Data Files...
