Hi,

i'm a new and very satisfied user. I have a question about the size of the sandbox partition. Per the instruction in the manual I have made that partition 15 GB. After making the safety clone, I see that it's only using 6 Gb of the available space.
Obviously I would like to use those spare gigs for better use. Could I repartition and make a new sandbox partition of say, 9 Gb, or would that be unwise?

Thank you for your reply.

Hi, Ray!

The size needed for a Sandbox partition is different for every user, of course. You don't want to make it too small, because temporary and swap files are stored there (not to mention any future apps and drivers and the like).

That said, 50% more space should be fine, so go ahead and use 9GB.
