    How to CREATE new STORAGE PARTITION on new TOSHIBA laptop?

    My new Toshiba laptop runs Windows 8, boots in UEFI mode and GPT formatted, can I create a logical partition solely for storage so that when I format/recover windows partition like windows system image restore, the files and folders stored in the partition is not affected?Just like I did in my old windows 7 laptop that boots in BIOS mode and MBR formatted, which I put the partition as D:\ drive? Are there any posibilities I do that without messing up the system?

    Logical Partitions NO, as with UEFI & GPT you can have up to 128 Primary partitions.
