I am going to be installing Windows 7 64 bit on my machine next week and I am reformatting my HD in the process, I currently only have it formatted into one partition (C) . When that is done I am going to install SW 2011 (I am currently using 2009). I have all my drawings saved in a separate folder to SW and I don't have any templates to transfer over as I only have a few that I use, they are really basic anyway and I will produce some better ones when I am up & running again.
My machine is a Dell Precision M6400 and I am the only person who uses it.
I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about whether am I better off having two partitions on my HD? Also,is there anything that I should do or avoid doing when installing SW, any suggestions would be appreciated.
