Hi Experts,

                    What is the maximum no of logical partitions that we can create in windows . Drive letter are available till "Z" . In some articles i find we can able to create 63 partition. How it will be done ?? Whether it will be done by mapping partitions to folder or some other way is there .

is it possible  you are referring to extended partitions, which can be subdivided into logical partitions?

You can create 3 primary and 1 extended partitions. Inside the extended partitions you can create as many partitions as you have space. As a test I created once 400 partitions. Not with Windows but with third party partitioning tool.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
