    Hey everyone,

    I'm having a bit of a problem resizing my external drive using Disk Utility.
    The situation is as follows: I have a 500 gb external drive which ever since I bought it and set it up, allocated 350 gb to one partition, and the remaining 150 gb (114 since the drive isn't exactly 500 gb). Now however, I wish to resize it to 250 gb, and 250 (again, probably more like 214 gb) but after lowering the space on the 350 partition, it won't allow me to resize the smaller 114 one to make use of the space I just cleared!

    Does anybody know why this is happening, and if there is anything I can do to achieve what I want?

    Thanks

    EDIT: I added a photo of the disk utility window with my external drive, just incase.
