We should have an answer for this by now.

How much Disk space does an XP sp3 need to perform at optimum?

For Example: on an XP OS size 15Gb with standard programs e.g. MS Office & maybe photoshop etc BUT no online gaming - how big should the OS partition be?

15Gb OS = 15GB? > 20Gb? > 30 GB? > 50 GB?

I don't consider $1000+ worth of software to be "standard". Optimum would be whatever your installation needs plus enough for future growth and maintenance. There's no magic number certainly if you're considering Adobe Photoshop to be a standard program.

My XP with Office, PS CS5 and a few other programs is running ~~20 gig full .. In a 64git SSD
All my personal data is in another HDD.
Performance is in the SSD and the RAM .. And the temp files have been moved to a HDD.
You need spare space in the C drive to work with large files (on the desktop in the C drive) ... And psd files can get large ..
not to mention Movies
