    partitioning an already-in-use HDD

    I'm using an external HDD for my USB loading of backup games. I would like to partition it so that I can store emulators and ROMS on it as well. I have room on the HDD, that is not an issue.
    Is there a way to partition an unused portion of it without wiping it clean first? I don't have a way to store my backups, temporarily, while I do it.
    Any help is appreciated, and thanks for the answers.

    I don't think it possible because the PC doesn't read the WBFS format, it can't work out where the data would end to create the partition. Data corruption would almost be guaranteed.

    If it had been the other way around, as in the primary was FAT32 then i reckon you'd of done it.

    Thats what I was worried about. Thanks for the response.

    MODS: If this is the way I have to roll, you can close the thread. If there is any other options for me, allow it open for a little bit longer. Thanks.
