I have an external hard drive partitioned into three volumes. I want to create a fourth partition so I can put a bootable lion dmg in it ( I was told that I had to create a separate partition). However, when I choose one of the volumes to split it to create another partition, I'm having difficulty in creating an 8 GB volume. When I decrease the size it stops at a certain size and when I do it manually by changing the size to 8GB, it looks weird. And it says I have 9 files in that partition. Can someone school me on this?
