    Trying to split my extermal 50/50 for OSX and Windows use. It works for OSX right now but can't figure out how to do the split. Help! It's a WD mybook.

    Also, while I'm here, is there a way to up my bootcamp partition's HDD space without reformatting?

    Thanks : )

    Windows cannot be booted from external disks easily.

    Normally you just backup content, erase the drive, and format as GUID journaled volume.
