Partition sizes
When my A1200 years ago had a 64MB hard drive I had two partitions and later upgraded to a 1.4GB drive and had four partitions.

I'm going to go for a 4GB CF as a HD and was wondering what sizes everyone has theirs set to? Thought I'd ask as this is being set up for me and I'd like to try and get this right first time. When I had a 1.4GB HD I never half filled it but back then WHDLoad wasn't around and I'm having a hard time imagining that I can come anywhere near filling a 4GB drive.

I might get back into coding again so a relatively small partition for this and I think about 10MB should be adequate. I don't code demos, only utils so won't be storing loads of raw data or modules.

Would be storing a load of music modules for playback as well as WHDLoad with as many games as I can get my hands on and I think this by far will be the biggest requirement.

So, what partitions do you have set up, what do you store and what sizes are they?

well,that depends what you use it for(as you have pointed out)

all my drives are upto and not beyond 512mb's for a workbench partition.

4gig for whdload.(if i have the space)

ive got a couple of work partitions around 1.3gig storage around 4gig each, i have a couple of these one for downloads one for lha and archives one for music one for games that are not whdload and a backup partition etc...
and thats just one drive on one sytem.
and all the drives i have are different on any amiga i have ,the drives i have are anywhere between 4 and 120 gig.

if i had a 4gig drive i wouild probbably do this,workbench about 60mbs or so(its only there to basicly boot the machine)then a work partition and whdload for the rest.(if games was what i was going to use the machine for)
