- 1-To seperate your important irreplaceable data from your replaceable operating system and programs.
2-Partitions allow you to keep the temporary , log and other junk files from getting mixed in with the data
3-Partitions can give you an area to add another operating system, handy when switching from one version to another (this what we did at the end of 2.1)
4-You can reorganize your drive and free up disk space using partitions
5-Images require a seperate volume so making a partition is a good way to allow you to keep an exact copy of your operating system with allowing a quick recovery from software failure (this will be covered in detail in next months lesson on images)
NOTE:Partitions will not save your butt if your physical hard drive has a hardware failure.
