 Partition (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Disk partitioning is a simple technique which can be viewed as a precursor of logical volume management.
With Windows the standard partitioning scheme is to create a single partition, the C: drive, where the operating system, data, and programs all reside.
A /home partition is useful for desktop uses as it allows a clean reinstall (or a fresh install of another Linux distribution) while leaving data intact.

 Partition names   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Partition names in Linux are based on the hard disk type, their position on the IDE or SCSI controller, and their partition number.
In this case each "hard disk" and "partition" are referred to by name, and are unrelated to their position on the IDE controllers, partition numbers and so on.
If you have partitions C and D on one hard disk, then add a second hard disk and create an active partition on it, the new hard disk's partition will become D, and what used to be drive D will become E, causing a domino effect as each drive gets the next higher letter.

 Manas: History and Politics, Partition of India
The partition of India is a signal event in world history, not merely in the history of the Indian subcontinent.
Whatever the "causes" of the partition, the brute facts cannot be belied: down to the present day, the partition remains the single largest episode of the uprooting of people in modern history, as between 12 to 14 million left their home to take up residence across the border.
The psychic wounds of partition are less easily observed, and we have barely begun to fathom the myriad ways in which partition has altered the civilizational histories of South Asia.

 Myths & Facts - Partition
The partition plan took on a checkerboard appearance largely because Jewish towns and villages were spread throughout Palestine.
The decision to partition Palestine was not determined solely by demographics; it was based on the conclusion that the territorial claims of Jews and Arabs were irreconcilable, and that the most logical compromise was the creation of two states.
As the partition vote approached, it became clear little hope existed for a political solution to a problem that transcended politics: the Arabs' unwillingness to accept a Jewish state in Palestine and the refusal of the Zionists to settle for anything less.

 Hard Disk Partitioning Primer
First of all, experience shows that 99% of errors damage only one copy of FAT and, secondly, for the majority of users it would be sufficient to copy their personal work to the floppy once a week and keep it in the safe place.
If you study carefully cylinder numbers in the third example you will see that extended partition has three EMBR tables each one is stored at the beginning of the extended partition and keeps a record about FAT (or other) partition and the pointer to the next extended partition.
It is much better to place swap partition as close as possible to the partition where the OS is installed.

 Partition Magic
Partitions have been something of a pain from the day they first started to be used on PCs, mainly because you couldn't change them after you'd started loading files on a drive.
Partition Magic 3 also supports the new FAT32 file system used with the OEM Service Release 2 of Windows 95 (and which will also be used by Windows 98), allowing you to convert painlessly to FAT32 (or even convert back to FAT16 if need be).
Then I used Partition Magic's cluster size control to change that partition to use 32K clusters; this speeds up disk access on that partition but isn't wasteful because the partition is going to be filled by one file anyway.

 Partition Table   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
For primary partitions, the Relative Sectors field represents the offset from the beginning of the disk to the beginning of the partition, counting by sectors.
When you have an extended partition on the hard disk, the entry for that partition in the Partition Table (at the end of the Master Boot Record) points to the first disk sector in the extended partition.
For the partition 2 entry, the Relative Sectors field is the offset from the beginning of the extended partition to the sector containing the Partition Table for the logical drive defined in the Partition 2 entry.

 Partition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Partitioning puts barriers on a disk so different areas of the drive can have different types of data on them.
You may have a single partition using 100% of the disk space if the drive is 8.4gb or less with "LBA" enabled in the BIOS Setup.
That means the letter for the first drive in the extended partition of disk 1 will be the first letter after the first DOS partition of the second drive.

 The Partition of India
Whether the partition of these countries was wise and whether it was done too soon is still under debate.
The partition of India and its freedom from colonial rule set a precedent for nations such as Israel, which demanded a separate homeland because of the irreconcilable differences between the Arabs and the Jews.

Its role is to determine which partition is the bootable one to load and execute its boot sector.
In addition, the partition table information is not the same as that on a hard drive that does not have disk overlay software.

 Partition Function (Visual Basic .NET)
If necessary, the Partition function inserts leading spaces before lowervalue and uppervalue so that they both have the same number of characters as the string representation of the value (Stop + 1).
This ensures that if you use the output of the Partition function with several values of Number, the resulting text will be handled properly during any subsequent sort operation.
The Partition function first establishes these ranges, and then the SQL Count function counts the number of orders in each range.

Your boot partition ought to be a primary partition, not a logical partition.
A single primary partition must be used as a container (extended partition) for the logical partitions.
In any case a partition should be small enough that its daily delta (all modified files) fits onto one backup medium (choose incremental backup and expect to change backup media for the weekly/monthly full dump - no unattended operation possible).

 partition - a Whatis.com definition
In personal computers, a partition is a logical division of a hard disk created so that you can have different operating systems on the same hard disk or to create the appearance of having separate hard drives for file management, multiple users, or other purposes.
It includes a partition table that defines how many partitions the hard disk is formatted into, the size of each, and the address where each partition begins.
For this reason, you should have a back-up version of your partition sector on a diskette known as a bootable floppy.

Sometimes small partitions are used for special purposes (OS/2 Boot Manager uses a small partition for itself, various laptops have a 'hibernation' partition where the state of the system is stored when it goes asleep).
Antoine reports that if the last partition in a chain of logical partitions is of a type unknown to DOS then the DOS partition table parser may leave data about it in its drive letter table and confuse this non-DOS logical partition with the next partition (maybe logical on another disk, or nonactive primary).
The system partition in Windows NT 4 must be contained in the first 7.8 GB of the disk (or less, in case the BIOS geometry does not have 255 heads and 63 sectors/track; the actual restriction is that all of it must be accessible using BIOS Int 13).

 The computer does not start after you change the active partition by using the Disk Management tool
On Intel-based computers, the system partition must be a primary partition that has been marked as active for startup purposes.
This partition must be located on the disk that the computer gains access to at startup.
If the partition that has been incorrectly marked as active is formatted in the FAT file system, the FAT32 file system, or the NTFS file system, you may be able to use the Windows Recovery Console to correct the behavior.

Partitions, or at least the FAT16 filesystems created on them, are at most 2 GB for DOS and Windows 95/98 (at most 65536 clusters, each at most 32 KB).
If a partition table entry of type 0x42 is present in the legacy partition table, then W2K ignores the legacy partition table and uses a proprietary partition table and a proprietary partitioning scheme (LDM or DDM).
A primary partition of this type is also used by IBM to hold an image of the "Reference Diskettes" on many of their machines, particularly newer PS/2 systems (at a rough guess, anything built after about 1994).

But we have created 24 partitions in advance, so stats will be null for all empty partitions.
Also, all partitions need to have statistics, or they will be missed by 'gather stale' - but it is actually good to have valid statistics on the empty partitions, so that should not be a problem.
I would favour collecting stats on partitions as soon as they are created and as part of the batch collect stats on the partitions just populated.

The argument that we can head off some future campaign of ethnic cleansing by not forcing the Sunnis, the Shiites and the Kurds of Iraq to live together in the first place should not be lightly dismissed.

One advantage of partition by popular sovereignty is its ability to amplify the voices of the unifiers.
