    Hello all. I have a 320 GB external hard drive that I mainly use as a backup for all my important files on my computer. There's still a lot of space left on here though, and I would like to partition it somehow so I can still keep all my files, but also be able to play Wii games. Is this possible? How would I go about creating this partition?

    Its very possible, since thats how I do ^^ (Partiton1: EXT3 Partition2: WBFS)

    Just use a partioner software (I used EASEUS Partition Master), example Windows own one.

    Also more and more loaders support loading from FAT32 and NTFS partitions, so you can actually have a BIG NTFS partition if you want, but I recommend a seperate one.
