    I recently bought a 1TB hard drive... I am trying to partition it to be 250GB Mac Format and 750GB NTFS. The reason for NTFS format is because I work with ISO files and Blu-Ray movie files a lot that are well over the 4GB limit of FAT32/Mac formats.

    Is there a decent disk utility for OS X or Windows that can format a hard drive into both of these file systems? The built-in Disk Utility in OS X only does FAT, to my knowledge, so I need something else.

    Thanks a lot!

    Install the NTFS-3G driver to have those capabilities and also be able to write to NTFS formatted volumes.

    I don't understand the need for the NTFS partition, unless you're using Windows for something. Mac-formatted partitions (HFSJ) don't have a 4GB file limit as you suggest.
