Part: III Administration, User Managemen... > Managing Disks and Partitions

Chapter 18. Managing Disks and Partitions

In This Chapter

The most immediate storage options available to a central processing unit (CPU) are its own cache memory and the registers built onto the CPU board. Next is the computer's physical memory (SIMM, DIMM, and so on), followed by the hard disk and other fixed media, and finally the machine's removable media. Managing all of this memory for optimum computer performance can be a challenging task. Windows XP Professional's most important memory-management tools are partitions. In this chapter, you learn how to partition disks and manage the disk volumes in your computer. Not only do you learn how to create partitions on the fixed hard drives in your computer, you also learn about sharing disks and partitions with other users in a network, along with other offline storage techniques such as CD burning.
