Default SSD + MFT ...

Guys, quick question:

I know that MFT will not run on the OS partition, thus the need to have 2 partitions.

I've heard that I should leave some unallocated space of my SSD, after having created my OS partition (properly aligned) and that upon the installation of MFT, the software will create an additional partition by itself with the remaining unallocated drive space.

One question remains: will MFT properly align the partition(s) it creates?

You only ever have to worry about alignment of the first partition. Everyone after that will be fine.

Haha I was hoping you'd chime in..! I saw you were pretty active on the OCZ forums and seemed really knowledgeable about the SSD stuff...

Thanks Lowfat
