4 may not be possible

by philldmc In reply to How to create more partit ...

four "usable" partitions my not be possible. Within Windows any individual drive, or logical drive, can only be partitioned up to 4 times..four seperate partitions per drive or logical drive..

In a nutshell, If I have two physical hard drives, not in a raid, I can have up to 8 partitions.

However, most Dells already come with a recovery partition and oem partition..plus one partition for the os drive..so on a typical Dell computers, with a single drive, there is already three partitions.
