What are Partitions?

Partitioning is the division of a computer hard disk or other secondary storage into one or more regions. Many computers have hard disk drives with only a single partition but others have multiple partitions so that an OS can manage information in each region separately. Each partition then appears in the OS as a distinct logical disk that uses part of the actual disk.
