    I doubt that a floppy's file system would support it. For instance, I know you cannot encrypt or compress files on a floppy. Other file systems like NTFS and FAT support these features. Floppy's do not use FAT or NTFS.

    In addition to Go2doug reply,
    It is not practical to partition a SMALL CAPACITY storage device.
    But you can make folders within floppy, which serves the same purpose. (although folders shares the whole same space).
