To most users, the words “partitioning your hard drives” are reserved for the more advanced PC users. Novice users do not know what partitioning your hard drive means much less on how to create these partitions. Partitioning your disks is your first line of defense against data corruption and serves as your basic backup solution for your important files and other data like photos, music, and other important documents.
Normally data corruption occurs when your computer suffers from a system crash which is most often times caused by a virus attack or a Trojan activating. Also, data corruption can also occur due to human error or hardware failure causing your disk drives getting corrupted. If this happens to your computer, all the files, folders, data such as photos, music, documents located on the affected disk drive will be lost or deemed inaccessible. But if your hard drive was partitioned, the files and other data located on the partitioned disk will not be affected and will still be accessible once your system gets back up or if accessed when plugged into a different computer.
Partitioning your disk is relatively easy; this is usually done after a reformat of your disk during the installation of a new operating system. You will be asked on whether to want to partition your drives during the installation process. There are also programs out there that can help you create a new partition without the need for a reformat or a reinstall of your operating system.
