Re: OS on a logical drive by itself?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Bruce Chambers, Jul 23, 2010.


  1. You're quite correct in your thinking. There's very little point
    in having a separate partition for applications. Should you ever have
    to reinstall the OS, you'll still also have to reinstall each and every
    application anyway, in order to recreate the hundreds (possibly
    thousands) of registry entries and to replace the dozens (possibly
    hundreds) of essential system files back into the appropriate Windows
    folders and sub-folders.

    However, placing data files on a partition or physical hard drive
    separate from the operating system and applications can greatly simplify
    system repairs/recoveries and data back-up.
