ive got 2 HD's
80GB- partioned equally into 2
20GB- partioned equally into 2

The more partions u hav the less utiliation of yoiur HD space. But the less partions u hav the more cumbersome it becomes to find files.

My setups is,
C:\ == SYSTEM
D:\ == Data
E:\ == Backup
This way, it doesn't waste space.

Unless you know where you put them, having more partitions wouldn't make things easier. Folders are there for that.

You are not physically wasting any disk space. But say you have a 160GB Hard Drive with four 40GB partitions. Say, all partitions have only 3GB space left. So, you have 12GB, but only 3GB contiguous space. Say you want to copy a DVD for encoding to DivX. But you can't, because you can't find contiguous space to copy the DVD to. You have 12GB, but it's wasted. If you had 40GB and 120GB partitions, you would have 9GB left on the 120GB. See?
