Partioning my 160GB external hard drive?

By bldsm ·
Is there an advantage to partioning my 160GB external hard drive for video editing into 2 80GB drives?

Does it increase speed, reduce errors and risks - what could you recommend please?

Thanks
Bruce

Myself, I recommend don't bother.

If you want faster writing to two or more physical disks you could try "Disk Striping"

look here for a little info on it.
