Hi there, I just bought Dell XPS 15, with 500 GB HDD
I have habit of using 3 partitions.
One for System, 120 GB
2nd 190 GB
3rd 190 GB
But now, there is hidden recovery partition of 13.4 GB, C of almost 200+ GB & Another of again 200+ GB
Is that recovery partition important.
I created the partition backup for the whole C: using Acronis True Image, I hope I can use it to restore original setup if anything goes wrong.
Also I do not think its good idea to have 200+ space for System Partition. 120GB is enough, since I feel its bad to store anything on System partition, as it becomes tedious to backup anything placed on the System partition, if OS corrupts.
Also I have got Win 7 Home Premium. Should I use Ultimate as I do development work using SQL Server & Visual Studio
Its also of 64 bit. Will it matter to run these 32 bit softwares? Also, I heard that Xp mode is not there in Home Premium.
So what should I do?
Is there anyway to partition into 3 volumes, without losing that hidden recovery partition?
