I have 1TB Iomega Prestige ex HDD that has just 1 partition of 936g (or there abouts). My question is this, I have a lot other stuff on this HDD (about 510gs worth) can I add a partition and use the remaining space (as long as its the primary source) as a usb loader?
You want to make the wbfs partition active and primary for the usb loader to recognize, but yes it's possible. The first time I used my drive for loading it was about 90% full of other data. I formatted what was left, about 20gigs, wbfs and it worked without issue.
