The Benefit Of Creating Multiple Partitions In Windows

With current drive technology, you are unlikely to notice any increase in performance by creating multiple partitions on the drive.

Also, if you store data on a secondary partition and for some reason need to reformat the system partition, you can do so leaving your data files on the secondary partition intact.
