FDISK - Definition

FDISK, included in all versions of MS-DOS and Windows, is a utility for formatting (preparing) a hard disk drive to hold data and to logically partition the disk, specifying and naming major portions of it for different uses. Typically most personal computers today arrive with the drive already partitioned and loaded with the operating system. The FDISK program allows you to delete, create, and partition different portions of the hard drive. Use caution when repartitioning a hard disk as repartitioning wipes out all data on the disk.
