Why Disk partitioning is required in Windows 8 enabled Samsung devices?

Last Update Date : Sep 07. 2018

Disk partitioning in Windows 8 enabled Samsung devices is the act of dividing a hard disk drive (HDD) into multiple logical storage units. It treats one physical disk drive as if it were multiple disks, so that different filesystems can be used on each partition. A partition editor software program can be used to create, resize, delete, and manipulate these partitions on the HDD. Partition is a unit of a computer’s hard disk split into virtual areas.




Advantages from disk partitioning :


Separation of the operating system (OS) and program files from user files.

● Allows image backups (or clones) to be made of only the operating system and installed software.

● Keeps frequently used programs and data near each other.

● Having cache and log files separate from other files. These can change size dynamically and rapidly, potentially making a file system full.

● Protect or isolate files, to make it easier to recover a corrupted file system or operating system installation.

● If one partition is corrupted, other file systems may not be affected.
