Partition

Portion of a physical disk that functions as though it were a logically separate disk. After you create a partition, you must format it and assign a drive letter to it before you can store data on it.

A partition is also called a volume. A volume may be a primary partition or a logical drive.

On a software RAID-type disk, a partition is called a dynamic volume.
