    Default Installing into one part of an External Drive

    Hello, I d like to install Backtrack4 into my 2TB external Drive but I dotn want to use the whole drive, I would like to jsut use lets say 50GB for BT4 and the rest for easy storign of files, etc.
    Is it possible to do smth like this? How can I do this? Is there a risk doing htis (cause I ve jsut bought that hard drive and I dont want to ruin it in the first day) Would there be any problems? Any other stuff that I should know?

    thnx for any help/advise
    Joe

    Tell us what you have learned so far during your research and then we might be able to fill in the gaps...
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    It never hurts to try yourself. And you won't be able to "ruin" your hard drive by installing, formatting, etc.
    Computer security is a temporary condition.
