Is it recommended to partition an external drive used as storage?

I'm going to buy a 1TB external hard drive to use it as storage (not backup) and I'm not quite sure if any partitioning at all would be good in this case (i.e. System/Data scheme does not apply).

"The disk can be partitioned if it shows up in Computer Management / Storage / Disk Management.

Just remember that it's better to create logical partitions (not primary)."
