If a few years ago the capacity of hard disk has not been so great, but different today. Hard disk with a very large capacity you can find easily, especially to complement the desktop PC or laptop. Average capacity of current hard disk has a minimum size about 250 GB. But for some purposes that require large storage capacity, it seems we have to provide hard disk with larger capacity, such as 500 GB and 1 TB. Such conditions would be in anticipation of the hard disk so that it can function optimally, one of which is to create a partition during the operating system installation process or through the software facilities.
To make a hard disk partition you can split into several section, such as drive A, drive B, drive C, and so on. Partitioning process is usually done through the installation of facilities at the time of formatting the hard disk, where you can enter a value for the desired partition size. The purpose of this partitioning is usually to facilitate the grouping of data and a specific file, so it is not difficult when we will open the file.
As for the manufacture of the partition by using the software is usually done after the operating system installation process done. But usually the process of making this kind of partition does not provide the maximum benefit because it is usually in the amount of hard disk do not format the partition first. Of both how to create hard disk partitions, I think making a partition on the current operating system installation process takes place is the most recommended.
