On Windows, by default,

USB Sticks cannot contain multiple partitions. The main difference is the term fixed and removable disks. Fixed disks can have multiple partitions, but removable disks cannot be used by default.

Typically, external hard drives are fixed disks, while other USB storage media are removable.

However, you can create multiple partitions on a USB flash drive by modifying and installing a USB drive that is disguised as a USB hard drive. It is highly recommended that you back up all data on the USB memory stick before proceeding so that you can recover if something goes wrong.

Users who want to create multiple partitions need a file named Hitachi Microdrive that contains the new driver to be modified first, and then install it.

Package the package into a new directory on your hard disk. The first step is to find out the exact name of the USB device on which you want to create multiple partitions.

This information can be found in the Windows registry. Press [Windows R], type [regedit] and hit [Enter] to load the registry editor.

The information is located in the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \\ SYSTEM \\ ControlSet001 \\ Enum \\ USBSTOR. The name of the USB device can be found by clicking the [] sign in front of the key. All USB devices should be listed there. You can copy the name of a usb backup encryption device by left-clicking the subkey, right-clicking, and selecting Copy Key Name from the context menu.

This key needs to be modified because it contains the complete path. The best way is to paste the contents into a text editor and delete all the characters in front of the disk

After this is done, we need to copy the rest to the Windows Clipboard again by selecting the text and pressing CTRL-C.

The driver information needs to be edited in the next step before installing the new driver for the USB flash drive.
