Partition question
Apr 14, 2012

Hi folks,

Later today, I plan on buying a 1TB WD portable hard drive. I wanted to partition it in half with one 500GB dedicated to use with Time Machine and the other half dedicated to backing up photos, including RAW files right off the memory card. My question is, should I have Apple's Disk Utility do the partitioning or whatever software comes with the drive? If you need to know, I have a late 2008 MBP 250GB hard drive with 4GB RAM.
