    OK, you are talking about maximum memory size, not about maximum bootable
    primary partition, which is Patrick's question.

    I know NTFS has a Limit. I read that NTFS 5 has a 2TB Limit but that i don't
    know if it is true. i would assume that the max size would be the limit of
    the space the file system allows you (since no single hdd for the public is
    near 2TB yet) that size would be all of it. not sure if that is right
    though.

  8. I also depends on the edition of Windows x64 you are using, the 2TB limit is
    possibly for Server 2003 x64.

  9. With all that being said. I have a 300 gig hard drive. So I can use the
    entire drive as the boot partition without having to split the drive into
    virtual peices?

    You can use the entire drive in a single partition instead of multiple
    partitions. Virtual "pieces" are different than partitions. Partitions
    are physical layouts on the drive surface. Page files, although they do
    take up physical space, are often referred to as "virtual memory."

  12. Thanks. Sorry about the lingo problem I was always under the impression
    that partitions were logical instead of physical. Thanks your help and
    setting me straight.

    It would'nt matter on the system or not all would have the same limits XP
    pro, 2000 or server 2003.

    The NTFS file system has the same limits on all systems.

    Only server 2003 SP1 which would of been included in X64 has the limits
    been raised to 256TB.

    The Limits were raised in SP1 futher Details can be found here

  14. You have nothing to worry about with your 300GB!!! hard disk being
    recognized under XP Pro x64. Anyway, I personally would partition it up into
    logical partitions to maintain efficiency and reliability against it
    becoming corrupt some how. You have data(video, music, photos),
    applications.

    You might want to do a dual boot too with XP x86 since XP Pro x64 has not
    turned out to be everyones cup of tea.

  15. Why? I just use folders. My 400GB Hitachi is doing just fine. I am not a
    fan of partitioning. IMHO the need for it only existed when controllers
    could not handle the full hard drive as one partition or when FAT32 was
    still widely used.

    Good Find. and wow, I'll Would'nt mind having a hdd that size but then if i
    did have one have so much space would not need to bother with buying another
    hdd again unless it fails (2 at the least with raid 1 or 4 for raid 0+1).
