External Hard Drive partioning help

I have a 1TB external hard drive (NTFS) that has all my files from my old PC, how do I create a partition on it for HFS+ without formatting it so that I can use it for Time Machine and the like?

You can't get it from NTFS to HFS+ without formatting. Your safest bet is to move your files off the drive, repartition and format, then move the files back.
