Partitions are logical divisions on a hard disk. Having multiple partitions on a hard disk allows you to store the OS and personal files separately. This will help make sure that your personal data is safe in the event of a hard disk crash or other disasters. Having multiple partitions also allows you to have multiple OS’s on the same hard drive, again another advantage. Once the partition is mounted, you can access files on it and this is referred to as volume.
