I will soon be using both Lion and Snow Leopard on my newly upgraded hybrid hard drive.I know that I should need to partition the drive into three 1 for Lion 1 for SL and 1 for data/applications.



  1. The problem is how is how much space should I give each partition?
  2. Has anyone done this before or have any good ideas how to go about it?



Some extra info:

  • I am currently using a MacBook Pro (mid 2009 13")
  • I am currently using Lion OS X v10.7.4
  • The new drive is 750GB Seagate Momentus XT 7200rpm 8GB(solid-state) hybrid drive
  • The soon to be replaced drive is a stock 250GB 5400rpm HDD


Thanks all help appreciated
