All About Partitioning

What is a filesystem, a partition, and how do they relate to your hard drive? In this week's episode of OS.ALT, I describe how to separate portions of your hard disk into usable chunks, how to partition it, and why file systems are important.

This lesson applies for people who want to learn about Windows 7 disks, Mac OS X Lion, Ubuntu 12.04, and other Linux distributions. As a special bonus I show you how to resize your Windows drives to prepare for dual-booting, and the best partitioning setup for your Ubuntu (or other Linux) installation.
