You say partitioning doesn't increase performance, ever seen a machine that goes slow after a partition?
Under certain rare cirmcumstances, a machine could run slower during certain program execution due to a partitioned hard drive. A database program for one.
I'm not saying the original poster would or would not benefit from partitioning. However, if the end goal is better performance, partitioning a hard drive isn't the answer. Keeping the partition(s) you have free from fragmented files and other crap will result in better performance. You yourself proved that.
Believe me, the fact that you now have multiple partitions did nothing to contribute to the performance gains you are now seeing.
