Smile security advantages of separate partition? (within a thumb drive)

So I am curious of something. Suppose I want a subset of files on a usb to be less likely to corrupt or, have any contact with/ acess to, the rest of the files on the usb.

Q: is there any advantage in putting the subset on a separate partition within the USB drive?

Many Thanks
