The OS should not take up that much. Is this a new drive? Are you upgrading?

right click on my computer and check where it says manage and look at disk management and see if there are hidden partitions on the drive..

I still have left on my HD about 10 G. Would it cool for Winrar, WinZip, Acrobat 8 , MS office 2007 and small part from Nero.
How much the HD will take for all UPDATE from Windows OS?
Thanks:thumb: :eek:

I had a Raptor 36GB as my primary OS drive, worked great, and fast, 10,000 RPM for OS and system files, temp files and VM, had plenty of space left ver.

Now I have two Raptor 36 GB's in RAID0 for the fastest OS/system performance. All my apps are on two secondary large HDDs.

It's a good setup
