Please can someone advise me if my second storage SATA 320 Gbt HD should be set to have a primary or logical partition as I am somewhat confused about this. My main bootable HD is a SATA 1.5 Tbt which already has 3 partitions. I am using XP SP3. P4 3000 G Hz 3 Gbt RAM.
Also I have another question please. I have played around with partition magic to see various configurations of how the second storage HD mentioned above can be partitioned. I notice that the second SATA 320 Gbt HD always seems to have some unallocated dead space at one end of about 7.8 Mbt. When it is set as a logical drive this dead space appears at the begining of the drive. When it is set as a primary drive this dead space appears at the end of the drive. Is this normal? Does this unallocated dead space contain some useful information or is it due to some odd sectors that won't fit into the normal file structure of the filing system?
Your advice would be appreciated.
