    I want to make 2 partitons on my disk.
    C for the operating system and D for storing data.
    I make C primary and active.
    Should I make the D primary or logic? why ?

    You can only have 4 partitions in total on an mbr hard drive.

    If you want more separate volumes, one of those can be an Extended partition.

    Inside that Extended partition, you can create logical drives.

    To most intents and purposes, a logical drive functions just like a regular Primary partition.

    The main difference is, you can't mark a logical drive Active.

    Hope that helps you to decide.
