I recently purchased and installed a new 120 GB HD into my win 98 NEC system. I am currently using it right now but I had some questions on partitioning the hard drive. First, what is the purpose of that? Can the partition be used to help backup and restore files if one part of the HD has been infected? If that is the case, how can I partition my hard drive? it currently has 111 free GB. Any help is appreciated, thank you.
