    I have 2 hard drives with  8 partitions between them. A 40gb with 6 partitions and a 120Gb with 2.
      C:\  8 Gb
            My current windows xp install, a slipstreamed SP2 RC2
      D:\ (Media) 10Gb
            It used to be home to audio video and pictures but my audio folder has
            grown a lot recently so now it just my ripped CDs and a folder of
            "drmed napster stuff" which I have downloaded but not paid for. I keep
            it seperate becuase I can't listen to it on other machines or synchronise
            it with my mp3 player. It also has midi files and soundfonts.
      E:\ (Games) 10Gb
            Games are getting so big now that I only have room for a few at a time.
            It contains Jedi Knight 2, Tron 2.0, The Singles, Half Life, Elite Force
            2, and various other demos.
     F:\  5Gb
          A previous windows install. SP2 RC1 I think. Got kinda crowded in
          there so I decided to go back to using C:
    G:\  (Programming)  1Gb
            Where I keep all my source code and some SDKs. Oh and a game
            crept in there somehow, Elite Force 1.
    H:\ (Longhorn)  5Gb
           Just an install of build 4074
    K:\ (Huge) 80Gb
            Mostly a scratch drive for stuff I record off the TV with my digital TV  
            card. It comes in at about 1Gb an hour so I can use it up pretty fast
            especially since I havn't got around to putting the stuff onto DVDR yet.
    L:\ (Backup) 35Gb
           General mishmash of stuff I want to keep. Downloaded programs, iso
            images, virtual pc images, ebooks, videos, etc.

    It's not as organised as I would like, but it helps me start looking in the right general direction. I recently installed Picassa and let it do a search across all the partitions and was very surprised how many pictures it found that I had completely forgotten I had.
