Solved Can I create two seperate partitions of Window's 10?

Specs: Windows 10, Intel i7-3930K / 32GB
Hi all,

I'm looking to create two partitions on my computer SSD so that in the case one gets infected the other one wouldn't be. For example, I would like to look at my banking information and play online poker on one. And download torrents, games, etc. on the other.

My questions is: Can I do this? Is this the best way to do this or even practical?

As for my specs: I will have a 250GB SDD and a 1TB SSD.

P.S. How often would you recommend fresh installs of Windows for someone who uses their computer a lot every day?

Any recommendations would be great!

Personally, I gave up partitioning many, many years ago.

Is this a PC, laptop or other?

"P.S. How often would you recommend fresh installs of Windows for someone who uses their computer a lot every day?"
I only go that far, when a hard drive/SSD has failed.

Hey Johnw,

This is a self built PC. Currently I'm upgrading my 1TB HD with a 1TB SSD and figured I'd give my computer a reformat while I'm at it.

I'm not sure what you mean by your second sentence... I know I should be reformatting at least once every two years.

"I know I should be reformatting at least once every two years"
I don't.

Now to give some thought to your other requests, back ASAP.

To save me asking more questions, best I use these logs.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.

If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt) on the Desktop.
The logs are large, upload them using one of these. No time delays/Captcha-I'm not a Robot/account/registration needed. Give us the links please.

Thanks Johnw - sorry not looking to download anything to my HD as I'm pretty security conscious. Your other answer is what I was looking for on what people here think would be a best practice - in terms of partition strategies. Thanks.

"I'm pretty security conscious"

Yet you play online poker, download torrents & use Windows 10.

The regular helpers on this website are most careful what programs they suggest are downloaded and what websites they are obtained from. We aim to help folk fix their computers not the other thing.

Computing.Net is not something new. I've been on it myself since mid 1999.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
