    Games and the OS ill load faster when on separate drives but when you format and reinstall windows again things get complicated.

    The best option would probably be to leave it as is, or merge C and E into one large drive.
    Store your data on D, the 2nd hard drive though, just need to config the my documents folder to pick that up (not sure if you are vista or 7)

    im using vista.
    i dont know what are those Configuratione EISA...

    hmm.. are you reffering to the C:/Users/Documents ?
    If i move it in D (HDD 1), wont it be hard for the HDD niddle to go there and fetch the info's (saved games, data etc) for the games/programs, installed in the HDD 0?

    now i made it like this:

    HDD 0 System (C: ) - 50 GB
    Games (E: ) - 232 GB installed games

    HDD 1 Storage (D: ) - 298 GB Movies, Pictures, Music, iso images etc

    i also changed all the C:/Users/... folders to the ones in (D: ) - movies, music,pictures,etc.. except documents. I left this in (C: )
    Maybe i will putt it in Games(E: )... not sure whats best

    btw, i noticed that all my partitions are active.
    I want to make Games (E: ) and Storage (D: ) logical. but i dont think it matters that much

    I would move documents also i never have my documents folder on c: drive that way if you ever format c: you still have your documents safe.

    Nope, its on a 2nd physical drive.

    The EISA partitions where most likely factory reset partitions, if you wanted to reinstall the OS back to factory settings.
