    Hi, how would I format a external hard drive partition to NTFS for windows ? There's no option in disk utility. Only MS-DOS ( FAT ) , ExFat, free space, Mac OS extended- journaled, Mac OS extended, journaled case sensitive.

    The other partition would be mac os extended journaled .

    You don't. Mac OS X doesn't support NTFS. Either get third-party software for the Mac or use Windows to format NTFS.
