Using 2T USB drive for several backup partitions Tags: OS X Backup USB Drive Mac OS X Last response: December 16, 2012 1:44 AM in Mac Os X Share KarlJay November 30, 2012 10:41:26 AM I'm upgrading my Hackintosh OSX from 10.6.7 to Mountion lion. I bought a 2T IOmega USB drive and did a full backup of the drive. I'd like to do another separate backup on a separate partition of the same drive rather than buy another drive. I used Partition Magic a long time ago and see that it is no longer supported. Is there any program out there that will allow me to resize this partition and create a new one WITHOUT killing the current backup. I'm no expert on OSX, so maybe there's something already built into the system.
