I just picked up an 250GB PATA drive and have formatted it into 3 partitions:
~60GB, ~120GB, and ~60GB
I formatted all three as NTFS. I guessed that my 120GB partition would not be supported by FAT32...?
I then realized that I had a ghost image of my "system" with a TON of the install work already done but it was a FAT32 image. I laid that down on the first partition and it worked great - booted right up and all partitions are there.
But if I go with one FAT32 partition ( C: ) and two NTFS partitions, my friend told me that I will have problems because the NTFS partition will not recogize the FAT32 partion. Does this make sense?
I'll be installing games on both the C: (FAT32) and D: (NTFS) partitions and use the E: (NTFS) partition just for storage. Will this work?
And can someone tell me what the maximum partition size for FAT32 is? I might be able to go with 3 FAT32 partitions instead - even though I know most of you will poo-poo me on that!
