how many partition we make in 500 gb hard drive..

Answer / pankaj batra

Due to MBR - Hard disks can be split into four primary
partitions, or one of these can be configured as an
extended partition.

An extended partition can theoretically contain an infinite
number of logical partitions,though Windows has drive
letters up to z: (plus some other characters).

This is not a limit on the number of partitions you can
create, even if you can't assign a drive letter to them

They can be mapped to a folder on another drive.

The New coming UEFI replacement for BIOS supports the GUID
format partition table or GPT, that does not have either
the partition size or partition number limitations of the
MBR format. The GPT is written to the second LBA sector,
following the MBR. The GPT format is now the the de facto
successor to the MBR
