If we buy a DIY computer, we have to partition the hard drive and install Windows operating system before using it. Usually, we split the hard drive into several partitions, the partition for storing the operating system and its setting is system partition, often named Partition C:. Other partitions are used for saving different kinds of data.
Since we can’t predict what will happen in the future, so the first time of partitioning hard disk maybe unreasonable one day, some partitions are big, some are small, some full, some still empty.
