Probably you have noticed that most computers have at least 2 partitions: one where are installed the Windows OS and yhe programs (C:) and one for other files (D:).
By default, a computer have only one hard disk with a single partition. Making 2 or more partitions is recommended because if your computer is infected by a virus or the system files are damaged, you can loose all data.
Doing separate partitions makes possible to have other data available in case your computer gives errors or you cannot access it by different reasons. The best applications can: create partition, format, change drive letter, duplicate/clone partitions and more.Here is a list with 3 best free disk partition software.
