Our hard drives have a certain capacity which we can adjust for additional tasks such as backups, file storage, space reserved for administrative tasks and more, that is why we create partitions on the hard drive that allow us to divide the hard drive into other sections for it. Partitioning our disk is important to create individual parts to store different types of data, for example, it is important to create an individual system data partition to avoid loss of information in case of system errors..

 

On many occasions we resort to extra programs to partition our disk , but there is a really simple method to create one or more partitions there and TechnoWikis will tell you how to achieve it in Windows 10 without the need to format the C drive, which results in all the Disc content will be erased .
