    I am about to use the wonderful (and free!) Easeus Partition Master 3.5 to create a free partition on my 1TB Seagate FreeAgent.

    From what I understand, this WBFS is not something that Windows understands, so I assume EPM won't see it either.

    I'd just like to know if you guys successfully managed to resize a WBFS partition without losing data? I'm thinking of starting out small then making it bigger if necessary.

    OTHER QUESTION: does the new WBFS partition have to be primary or logical?

    hi,

    it has to be primary.
    and yes, the "EASEUS Partition Master 3.5 " (i got the same tool ^^ ) will see that partition but as "unformatted".
    and well, as far as i know there is no way to resize a wbfs-partition at the moment.

    Thanks for the help. I guess I will buy a separate hard drive then.

    The WBFS partition has to be "Primary" but doesn't have to be at the beginning of the disk to work. I have a guide in my sig if you get stuck somewhere.

    I'm going to test resizing the partition now, but I don't think the extra sectors will be WBFS format. Hopefully the formatting is just in a header and not written to every sector [​IMG]

    Nope, apprently you can't extend the partition at all, atleast not until someone makes a program to do it specifically! So make it big the first time [​IMG]
