i dont get why it matters.. it will be cexyz then 137 gb (in actual bytes=less) on F and rest on G

1MegaByte = 1024 Bytes not 1000 Bytes

I just wonder. Are you sure, that F-drive size is 137 gb? I mean, if partition 6 takes UP TO 137 gb, isn't that then 137-8=129 gb? (note: lba28 limit is 137 gb).

a little G drive lets you keep apps and temorary games that might not stay on your xbox, while the F drive is permanent games so you dont fragment your drive

So having a 63G or 55G Partition is worth a thread? Thats what I use my E drive for.
