I have a WD Passport 1tb usb hard drive and I need to create a fat32 partition on it. I have 100gb free on it and the rest is filled with info I need to keep and I have no way of backing that info up to anything else. I only need to make a 60gb fat32 partition. I tried swissknife and every time I select my usb device it says "swissknife has encountered a problem and needs to close"

Any help would be great!
Thanks

Why do you need to make a FAT32 partition on the drive?
In the beginning there was the command line.

You might want to look at Easeus Partition Master (http://www.partition-tool.com/)

Because The ps3 wont recognise it unless it's fat32.
