Any help greatly appreciated.

I have a Western Digital 3TB external Hard drive
Please let me know if we can make 8 partitions on Western Digital 3TB external
hard drive. Is there a way to make more than 4 partitions. I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit operating system.

I would like to use 3 Partitions for installing Unix/Linux, Windows Xp
operating system and the rest for storage.

Thanks a lot

there is only a limit on number of primary partition, you should be able to make 3 more operatng system. you can then make as many logical partition as you want which can be used for storage.

So short answer is yes you can make 8 partition.
