Partitioning EXTERNAL Storage?
Have an external Hard Drive USB2 --only 40G, but intended for Text.
Want to be able to use it as "go-between" Computers to create Back-Up files across several Computers. Also, leave files from several Computers in one place as a Centralized source that is easy to use and kept off-site. Remember these are text files, so 40G is not all that skimpy.
QUESTION: Can the External USB2Hard Drive be kept as one Big Extended Drive with multiple Folders for each Computer, with sub-Folders for each type of Doc. ?
Or is some other form of organization preferable or required?
(For example, does it need a primary but inactive (?) partition?)
I would prefer not to impact on the Drive Lettering of any Computer it visits.
