Im doing a reformat of the disk in Windows and what should i choose for it?

 

Im going to have it as a extra drive to store stuff on and so i can take it out from the PC.

When i want or something and still boot windows.

The options in Windows is : Primary or Logical what should i choose of these so i can do the above?

If you want to use the drive as storage and still be able to boot from this drive you have to use primary.....you're only required to select "secondary" or "logical" if you create multiple partitions in the same HDD....which doesn't seem to be the case
