am just wondering with HDD's getting so massive in size these days (1TB and 2TB internal drives) if its smarter to split the drive into smaller partitions?
my thinking is that if i have, let's say a 2TB drive and split it up into 4 partitions of 500gig yeah and then......'IF' the drive should fail i won't loose EVERYTHING but only that one partition that failed leaving the other partitions healthy and usable????
does that make any sense and more importantly, is that possible? or if a drive fails, everything is LOST
