Just good management and if you OS dies, then you can delete it with no worries about losing data.

Yes 15 gigs for C: is best easier to do a clean reinstall without endangering your data files

It depends on what version of Windows your running but 15gig is probably more than twice what you need for even XP. If your planning to put your programs on a separate partition then 6gig ought to be ample for XP.

Definitely have a separate partition for your data though. ;-)

Can you give instructions please as to the setting up for two uses to have seperate identities if possible and using 3 partitions ?
