Hard disk, on what the disk partition is known as a memory space, can be divided into multiple partitions in existent Windows OS. By the way, it incisesdivisers a holistic disk into numeral partitions, storing classified data and various partitions on it can read the data more effectively. Damaged data partition would not be destroyed and reinstalled when Windows system went wrong, but the OS partition no good luck.

A Hard diskHD may be split into multiple for smaller cluster sizes by a part of usersclients. The sense to do so is that a file (only require 2KB to store) with one word in a large partition (has a cluster size of 64KB) occupy all the 64KB of space on the disk, so it’s better to save a large number of small files.

With the diskpart.exe command, you can do partition operation. As graphical tools in many operating systems, Partition Assistant does the same things. As a free partition manager, it can move a partition and resize partition to chang the size of the partition to optimize disk space usage more than only partition on a disk.
