anyway what I would do if C is the one that is no good right now and you have xp on D I would make sure I have everthing off C I would then reformat C and leave it at 10gigs or 5gigs and have this one as my systemdrive that holds Windows the Idea behind this (some will disagree) is all your programs can live on D drive with the data so if windows crashes all you have to do is rebuild C if things get real bad like now you know you can safley format C and all you loose is windows which you can then reload. The idea of having 10gigs is so you can leave room for expasion or for some programs that refuse to run unless they are on C. I have seen it where some disk are partitioned to have windows on C programs on D and data on E.
or you can split c into 2x5gigs then having a 5 gig c & 5 gig D load windows get it all updated then backup c to D. this way if C crashes you just have to load windows without updating and restore it back from D.
Ther are many options (i have mine split and run 98 on 1 and XP on another partition)

Ok, that sounds a bit too complicated for me, How about this:
I have all my programs on D: (when it is resized), and I keep a backup of all my files on C: (which will be smaller), that way, if the computer crashes again I could get windows back onto D: and just restore all my files to it again.

leave programs and data on D
remember C is the one that will most likley crash and it all seems to run
smoother if windows is on C

Also, will having all programs and files on a different partition slow my applications down?

I read it that C was 10gig and D was 60gigs oops
Ok we can repartition I woud think about reformating C if you have everything off? after all you do have a bad install of windows there
or we can try and remove the old windows (am i getting this right about an old copy of windows on c)
PS back soon time for a beer
