Create a new disk partition without partitioning
Authored by: tiedyed on May 09, '05 10:18:42PM

juz10mac is correct, but let me expand on that. Whether or not you have multiple physical partitions or simply a mounted image file, the disk has to continually seek the same drive to accomplish tasks. That's where the slowdown is. Some applications recommend the application on one partition and media or data files be on another. They SHOULD be saying the app and data files be kept on seperate hard drives to reduce seek time on both. You are on a laptop, so you're stuck with a single drive. You may consider an external hard drive for your purposes.
