Hello&nbsp; everyone, i have a question about partitioning a 2TB external hard drive that is formatted for 1.8 TB, i would like to partiotion it into (2) 500G partitions and whats ever is left as another partition, i dont remember how to go about doing it, if i think i remember correctly, i have to delete the partiotion first ( there is not data on it at the moment ) then partition the drive as stated above, i will be using partition home wizard 6.0, also, cant i&nbsp; just "resize the 1.8TB drive to what i want ?. or is it better to delete it and re partion the drive, <br><br>Thanks in advance.

Better to delete it and Windows can do it in Disk Management.

Don't know about your third party software, but make sure it is Windows 7 compatible.
