Ok people I have my A+ exam on Wednesday but theres one thing I need brushing up on and thats hardrive partitioning, now I know all about RAID 0, 1 and 5 and those in between, know what an "active" partition is ie the os, know that you can partition a hardrive into parts ie one for os the other for files etc.
I cant grasp this dynamic, fixed and logical.
Just now I was using paragon partitioning software as I have just installed a 40gb ide drive as slave to play around on, I decided to partition it into two segments , so two 19gb's, it gave me the option of making it "logical".
A logical partition is just a subpartition on a single disk.
A dynamic partition is one that can span multiple hard drives, and has more flexibility than a fixed partition. I believe a fixed partition is defined by the MBR and the dynamic partitions are defined by the OS.
