Why need to split partition in Windows 8?
In order to classify and administrate your files better, you need to split one partition into two or three parts. Many users may come across this problem, because when you buy a new computer, is always has been partitioned into two parts, one system partition and one data partition. Under this circumstance, the data partition would contain many documents of different categories. As a result, it may cost you plenty of time to find a small file. What's worse, some computers just have one partition, so that the application programs and the data files are all put in it. When you have to reinstall the Windows 8 system because of the virus attack, it will cost you a lot of time to have a backup. Therefore, it will be better if you have more than two partitions.
