Partitioning Question about a Dual Boot with Windows and Linux
Hello. I have a pc running Windows XP and would like to dual-boot with Linuxmint. I went to defrag my c:\ drive in Windows and heres what the file structure looked like:
^most of my files are nice and tidy at the front of the drive
..........................^ there is a small group of files sitting half way into the disk.
My question is this: Is there any way to move that "lone tree" to go alongside the "forest".
Also, when I go to install Linuxmint, do I have to allocate half of the drive to Windows due to that lone "tree" sitting out there halfway into my disk. Or can I go with something a lot smaller since the vast majority of my files are in the beginning part of my drive.
thanks in advance.
