    What format (file system) does it use then?

    Either check via Get Info in Finder or Disk Utility.


    Or does it not show up even in Disk Utility?

    But if the HDD is already full or was full before, partitioning will only work with an empty HDD, as the data will be deleted, thus you need to copy the data to your internal or any other HDD first.
