Here's one theory: Set up 3 partitions:
1. for System files (this won't fragment much
2. for Applications/utilities (this will fragment a little
3. for "data" (documents + digitized data) This will fragment alot, but
when you defrag/optimize, you won't have to do your whole system.
(and perhaps if you're doing alot of video capture, a partition just for
that that you can easily just reformat when you're done with the files. I
know AVID used to suggest reformatting or reinitializing hard drives used
for digitized media in between projects as a matter of routine)
