Hi greenwarrior Disk partitioning
Is the act of dividing a hard disk drive into multiple logical storage units referred to as partitions, to treat one physical disk drive as if it were multiple disks. primary partition
Contains one file system. In DOS and earlier versions of Microsoft Windows systems, the system partition was required to be the first partition.Extended partition
A hard disk may contain only one extended partition; the extended partition can be subdivided into multiple logical partitions. In DOS/Windows systems, each logical partition may then be assigned an additional drive letter.
Information from HEREAlsoA logical disk
Is a device that provides an area of usable storage capacity on one or more physical disk drive components in a computer system. Other terms that are used to mean the same thing are partition, logical volume, and in some cases a virtual disk (vdisk).http://en.wikipedia....ki/Logical_disk
