I'm editing a procedure related to hardware that is normally performed by our production department (hence my lack of familiarity with the topic). The procedure calls for "splitting the hard disk in two partitions, c: and d:."

Does simply that mean "creating an additional drive, named d:," or am I missing something?

I was told that "they" (the intended readers) would "know what it means." I dunno. If I were reading something that told me to split my hard drive, I'd be scared.
