OK, nobody's keen on a quick answer.. maybe someone can confirm or correct this plan. Create one NTFS drive that's 1300 GB that leaves me with a 465 Fat 32 thats whats left of the whole FAT32 that the drive is currently and a NTFS at 1300 THEN I can create another NTFS at 930 GB which should leave me now having 1 FAT32 at 465 (original),1 NTFS at 465GB, and 1 NTFS at 930. NEXT I create another 465GB NTFS out of the 930GB from the previous step and now I have 1 FAT32 @465GB, and 3 NTFS @ 465GB each. Should the last one be an extended partition so that it can be further subdivided if I so choose. Should the first three partitions be primaries. What does logical drive mean?\ Thanks for your help. I am trying to learn.
