what benefit is there to partitioning a 3 tb external hd

just a simple should I or shouldn't I type of question, there is no issue with being able to only get part of the hd to set up as I have windows 8.1 64 bit with UEFI bios just curious as to what I should do. I intend to mostly use it as a media server for the home network

Thanks for any input,

    The only reason to partition it would be so that if you took it to a different computer that couldn't recognize something as big as 3TB you could still use it. Previous versions of Windows only recognized 2TB or less.
