Disk Partitioning

Disk partitioning is the process of dividing a physical disk into multiple logical storage units, known as partitions or volumes. A partition is a logical section of a physical disk that functions as if it were a separate physical disk, with its own file system, storage capacity, and drive letter or mount point. Partitions can be used to separate data or operating systems, and to manage storage more efficiently by allowing multiple file systems on a single physical disk. Common partitioning schemes include MBR (Master Boot Record) and GPT (GUID Partition Table).
