I always create a 100 GB partition for the C: drive, which is much more than you'd reasonably need, but you can always use the extra space to install games and store data files for convenience.

You don't need a partition for this.

This isn't the days of XP where you have to format every year to prevent the bloat and slowdown. Let it have the whole drive and share it with your games.


Yes, but if you have a separate partition for your OS, then you can periodically create an image of the partition as backup in-case your C: drive becomes corrupt or your hard drive dies and you just want to restore the partition image on to it to create a 1:1 copy of your last working backup.

As you say, it's a lot less necessary than in the XP days, what with a (mostly) working System Restore, Windows 10's own Refresh ability, less chance of hard drive corruption, and better AV software than back then. But for small businesses, or even home users, some people still do this.
I'm a PC and console gamer - I love good games, regardless of their host system.
