Hi everyone, I am planning on buying an external hard drive to back up files and probably use for Time machine for 2 MBPs in my house (mine and my wife). I think 1 TB is fine (plus the fact that it fits my budget). Question on you gurus, did you partition your hard drive? and if yes, how many partitions and what are the they for? I am thinking of having 3 partitions. first is for a time machine for 2 MBPs (maybe 300GB or is this too large?), 2nd partition is for the Personal and Media Files (600GB, this includes my itunes), and probably the last partition will be 'EXTRA' which will be used whenever i want to get some files from my work pc or a friend's pc (basically the day to day activity in which you need a portable drive), alloted space: 100gb or what will be left on the 1TB as I know i will only get 900+ GB space even if it is advertised as a 1 TB drive. Just want to know how other people do it. Thanks in advance!
