How to Split Windows 11 Partitions to Manage Data

The problem is that the Microsoft company has equipped its operating system with a feature that makes this possible. Given the name Disk Management, we just really need to enter the settings deep enough to be able to access it.

As the name suggests, Disk Management is a tool for the Microsoft Windows operating system that is specifically designed to assist users in managing laptop or computer storage media. Its features can be used for both HDD and SSD.

Apart from allowing us to create new partitions, Disk Management can also be used to divide up existing storage volumes. For example, to separate personal data from work or group file types.

Even though it is located quite deep, using the Disk Management feature in Windows 11 is not a difficult thing. We can also easily divide existing partitions when we need them.
