Hi guys

I recently put a 320gb drive into my macbook and partitioned it into 3 drives one for the OS, one for apps and one for data, eg photos, music etc. Is this necessary? It's what i do on windows based pc's but not sure whether i need to do this on the MAc in quite thae same way.

Does anybody have any recomendations for partitionig this drive, i don't intend runnig bootcamp or similar, just snow leopard.

thanks
mml

My recommendation is you just have the disk as one big volume, there is no real advantage in partitioning it, and plenty of things that might cause you hassle if you do it.
