To use a new hard disk drive, you need to partition and format it. Generally, you need to partition this hard disk and create several partitions for different usage. Windows provides Disk Management to partition hard disk, with which you can do basic hard disk partitioning, for example, create, delete and format partitions. For advanced hard disk partitioning, like resize and move partition, copy partition or disk, etc. you need third party partitioning software.
Hard disk partitioning is the act or practice of dividing the storage space of a hard disk drive into separate data areas known as partitions. A partition editor program can be used to create, delete or modify these partitions. Once a disk is divided into several partitions, directories and files of different categories may be stored in different partitions. More partitions provide more control, but too many may become cumbersome. The way that space management, access permissions and directory searching are implemented depends upon the type of file system installed on a partition. Careful consideration of the size of the partition is necessary as the ability to change the size depends on the file system installed on the partition.
