I would like to change it to the NTFS format (which I have heard is better) and create 2 partitions. I went to "Disk Management," and the drive is showing as the dark blue color for "primary partition." If I right-click on it, it will not allow me to create a new partition. I see with the "Format" option that I can make it NTFS, but that doesn't help with creating 2 partitions. Is it safe to delete this partition and start anew?
This is new territory for me, and I am nervous about doing this. I have nothing on this external hard drive yet, and I did not use the CD installation software that came with it. I believe the only thing on that CD is the software for assistance in making back-ups of my files. I would like to use one partition as a back-up for my regular files and another partition for video editing down the line.
Hope someone can help...thanks!
