TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I was pretty clear on what was meant by "splitting the hard drive," but unsure how to rephrase it without the jargon "splitting." I'm going with either "divide the hard drive into two partitions," or "create two partitions..."
FYI, the intended readers are a mixed bag, but I'm told most would know hardware enough to understand the procedure.
As Bruce Byfield pointed out, this isn't an uncommon practice. Our systems are usually shipped pre-installed on computers with the hard drive already partitioned(which is why I've never had to document this). The OS is on c, while the application data is on d.
