PC-based Partitions

The last chapter provided an overview of volume analysis and why it's important. Now we're going to leave the abstract discussion of volumes and dive into the details of the partition systems used in personal computers. In this chapter, we will look at DOS partitions, Apple partitions, and removable media. For each system, we review how it works and look at its data structure. If you are not interested in the data structure details, you can skip those sections. This chapter also covers special considerations that should be made when analyzing these systems. The next chapter will examine server-based partitioning systems.
