How to Create Partition with Two Methods?

Creating more than one partition lets you separate the operating system from user files and keep frequently used programs near each other. Before creating a partition, you should pay attention to the following two points:

  • On a master boot record (MBR) disk, you can create up to four primary partitions, or three primary partitions and one extended partition, including multiple logical drives.

  • On a GUID partition table (GPT) disk, you can create up to 128 primary partitions, but no extended partitions or logical drives.
