[Answered] question about PS3 HDD Partitions help?
i recently asked if it was possible to format a 2tb hdd to 1 tb of NFTS files system and around 800 gigs to fat32, and some said this was possible.
But is this also possible if i already used space on the HDD as it is now completly formatted as NFTS and i use 250 gigs of data already, so is it possible to make a partition of fat32 around 800 gigs witout have to remove the already stored data on NFTS.
I hope you'll understand the question.
Yeah you can.
First you need to "shrink" or "resize" your ntfs partition to make room for your FAT32 partition. Then you should have a space called "unpartitioned space" or "free space" at the end of the drive. Then just create a new partition in the space you just made formatted to FAT32.
That should give you 2 partitions on your HDD without losing any data from your NTFS drive no matter what partition manager you use, just don't use the windows built in one as you wont be able to format the 800GB partition as FAT32.
