Partitioning

A partition is called a logical drive on a physical drive. This means that one actually existing hard disk is divided into one or more areas and can be respond with its own drive name. The first partition is mapped to C:, the second to D: and so on.

Due to the size of most standard hard drives, it is no longer absolutely necessary to partition the hard drive, but it can be useful for the following reasons:

  1. Multiple use ⇒ For computers that are used by multiple users, each user got his data area on his own partition
  2. Multiple systems ⇒ On a hard drive several different operating systems can be installed as Linux or Windows and it must be for each operating system a partition be reserved
