Hello everyone. I have a slightly off-topic question. The company I
work for will be purchasing new PC's for the tech writing department (8
writers). The PC's hard drives will be between 6-10 GB. We are trying
to decide what the most logical partitioning structure would be. Our
current hard drives are approximately 3-4 GB, with two partitions. All
my files/software are on the primary partition (I'm currently not using
the second partition.) Could you please let me know how your hard
drive/partition is set up. We were trying to decided if we should group
related software applications on one partition (such as all
Microsoft/RoboHELP on one, all Adobe on another, and then any unrelated
applications.) Here is a list of software applications we plan on
loading on most of the PC's:
FrontPage 98 or 2000 - will be loaded on 1 to 2 PC's
Publisher (currently don't own, considering purchasing) - will be loaded
on 1 to 2 PC's
PhotoShop (considering purchasing)
Authorware (considering purchasing) - will be loaded on 1 PC
Also, I would be interested in anyone's opinion on FrontPage 2000 &
Authorware 5. I currently use FrontPage 98, and would like to know any
pro's/con's of FrontPage 2000. Thanks and have a great day.
