I created a new partition to install Win 8 Release Preview, and downloaded it, having first made sure all my drive backups were up to date
When the download finished there was an option to install now or install later “from the desktop”. I chose to install later and found that a new folder called ESD had been created on the C drive, and a new folder called Websetup appeared in my C:\Users\Roy\AppData\Local\Microsoft folder. I want to make sure Win 8 is installed in the new partition, so I moved the ESD folder to the new partition, and created a folder for Users\Roy\AppData\Local\Microsoft in the new partition, and moved the Websetup folder to that. I assume that is OK and that I can install Win 8 from the new partition, but would appreciate fellow loungers comments before I proceed.
Thanks and regards, Roy
