I have a 200gig SATA hard drive and am running Windows XP. I am a newbie. My computer has a single partition which has 200gig but only displays 178gigs. I thought I knew what to do but based on the above comments I not quite sure now.
I think I would like to resize this partition so I can create additional partitions. Wouldnt this help my system boot faster? Well anyway I couldnt quite determine which I should be doing or if I should be doing both processes. And if thats true which should I do first? It appears from all of the comments I have read this is quite simple in Windows Vista but what about XP? Are there additional tools I should be utilizing? If so which ones? Are there free tools available (not demos).
