I purchased an external HD to backup my existing HD. I want to reformat my existing HD to get my system running like new (currently slow w/occasional problems). Anyway, I hooked up the external HD w/no problem.
Now I want to partition the new external HD. All the tutorials I find say to right-click the unallocated portion of the disk and choose "New partition". This is where I'm stuck. I've tried to right-click everything on the screen that even resembles this and I don't get a option for create a new partition. I have attached a screen shot showing what the screen looks like and what the options are that i'm getting when I right click.
Am I doing something wrong? Why cant I get the the partition wizard? What am I missing here? This should be pretty straight forward...right?
Thanks for any help out there.
