I currently have 500 GB external FAT32 formatted drive. I would now like to create a partition for a NTFS formatted section so that I can have files larger than 4GB. I can't seem to add another partition using the disk management program because it says I have no unallocated space. How do I do this without losing all the data curretnly on the HD?
