In terms of virus infection, having multiple partitions
are safer than single partition?

For example, if the machine has drive C, D, and E.
Drive C is the windows operating system, and drive D and E are
data files drives. If drive C is infected, will it infect
drive D and E also?

Please advise. thanks!!
