    1. if i put my page file swap file temp folder on its own partition, is it best to use fat32? if i remember right fat 32 is fastest just isnt the best for space usage.

    2. does reinstalling windows after time (1-2 years) create better performance? im not sure what it is but windows xp and under always seemed to slow down after years (even with proper maintenance)

    3. if i create one partition for windows and one for EVERYTHING else, can i reinstall windows and when i boot up everything will be exactly the same? (considering i dont format the partition during windows setup) ?

    thanks so much everyone.
