    Default Hard drive partition size for os and storage

    Hi everyone. Paul 2000 here.

    Thanks to everyone that have help with my questions for the first new build,,, now the installation is over, tcheck the specs for comments.

    Now what i cant seem to get right, is how to partition 1 TB to get a good amount of space for my OS and storage, do i have to do 2 partitions or 3, because after doing it for three times, it looks like if i put a usb with an Adobe Software in it for installing it, i have an Error message, because there is not enough space on that part of the drive to perform that task.

    Thanks in avance for all help.

    Just use one partition... Otherwise, I like 50-100GB for the OS.

    I should point out, 50GB is just about enough for the OS with a few programs. 100GB is better for all you apps too, but keep data on a separate drive.
