I run W7 Home Premium, and have set up a C:\ partition and a Data partition on my biggest drive.
I use my 2nd drive for images. (I also take images to an external drive from time to time.)
I don't have a space problem, but I am curious as to the following:
My data partition contains 16,986 files in 1,758 folders.
I estimate 95% of these files are non-active, in the sense that I keep them "just in case",
for reference if ever needed, or as "duplicate set-up files."
Would things like taking images and day-to-day usage go faster if these non-active files were zipped-up,
instead of left as individual files as they are now?
How do other folks organize their "stuff"?
