I'm interested in partitioning my external 250Gb drive to install Ubuntu on. I already have some data on the drive that I do NOT want to be erased. Can I add a partition to the drive and preserve the existing data?

Thanks!

Thank you both! I just decided to backup my important files and partition it in Disk Utility.
