I have a new Seagate FreeAgent 500GB FireWire drive hooked up to my desktop G4. I'm partitioning four separate partitions, to backup various volumes on my Mac. I've done this before, this drive is a redundant backup. I told it to partition at the various sizes I specified, Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) but the progress bar seems to have been stuck at the same place for almost an hour. I tried to quit out, but got a warning that it might render the disk inoperable. So i'm letting it go, but is there something wrong? I ran maintenance scripts and fixed permissions with Onyx this morning before I started this. Thanks for any replies!
