My external drive is on its way. I want to partition it 3 ways: one for osx backup, osx storage, and windows xp back up. But I was wondering if games ran well off of external drives? I was thinking about adding a 4th partition to the external drive to store games, as my bootcamp partition is pretty small on my internal and I want to keep it that way. Any help would be great. P.S. Any help with the formatting necessary for each partition would be deeply appreciated. Thanks!
