Mine is formatted for Mac with one partition (3TB and 1TB). Can I change the partition size without affecting stored data?
Asked by: Bryan
If you are on a Mac, yes, you can do that within disk utility as of Mac OS Snow leopard. Keep in mind that while it is non-destructive, having a backup of your data is absolutely still recommended and this will only work with disks formatted with the GUID Partition Map.
