What is partitioning?
As usual, partition on Windows machines can make each partition behavior like a separated hard disk. With several partitions, you can save your data by category, and can reduce the virus infection to files.
In addition, partitioning is to divide a mass hard disk into isolated partitions, which can optimize the performance of disk. That is because under Windows system, the FAT/NTFS file system operating system automatically assigns cluster size based on the disk size: the larger the disk, the larger the cluster. However, a wasted disk space may result from large cluster. There are many software companies devoted to building utilities that help you partition hard disk properly, for example, Partition Magic, Fdisk, AOMEI Partition Assistant.
