I own an SSD but it's just sat in a box somewhere, I still prefer normal hard disk drives for everyday use.

 

I simply own an iMac which has a 500GB drive and a Windows 8 laptop which has a 1TB drive.

 

I don't bother with external drives as I don't keep anything that can't be retrieved online somewhere really.

Split Into 6 partitions (OS, Documents, Programs, Games, Temporary Storage, Archive).

 

 

You know, most OS'es have a file system that can handle this thing called "folders".

 

Is this the digital equivalent of the 5-year-old at the dinner table who refuses to let his green peas touch his mashed potatoes?

I split my RAID stripe 256GB into C: and D:, C: is OS and programs, D: is Games, and X: is a 2TB drive for Data/Misc/Media

 

The reason for the C:/D: split is when I do a system image, I only do C:, I don't need the 50GB of battlefield 4 backed up in my 9GB system image using EaseUS or Acronis. People have legit reasons sometimes.

There's not much difference between a system image of a partition, and a partial backup of select folders.

Yeah but then this means it's slightly harder to get to each folder from how I have my rig set up.

Plus, the root of the C drive has a lot more folders than "OS".  Sorry for wanting to make my life slightly easier so I can find what I need quicker.
