Have recently aquired a Large capacity Sata HDD and an eSata enclosure ..... my intent is to use it for backup and storage of data files in an effort to relieve my everdiminishing free space on my internal drives ... before I actually use this device it occurred to me that was there any real need to partition it ..... it is a Seagate 320gb unit so therefore it is quite a sizeable HDD. I am aware that partitioning is very much the domain of the personal user but could not the use of folders be an adequate way of file management. I am posing this at the more knowledgeable members of the forum and would welcome their advice on this. I must add this to post .... I am reffering to Multi-Partitioning in this post.
