    Hello at all.
    I need to enlarge partition of my Time Machine

    I have an external 1TB hd, based on GUID map scheme, split into 2 partition:
    1st 600GB hfs+ journled (with my TM) - partion A
    2nd 400GB ntfs (data) - partition B

    By disk utility, I tried to remove the 2nd, but when do that, the alert says me that "partition A will be deleted", "partition B will be deleted".
    Why?
    It depends by ntfs format on 2nd?
    If I initialize the 2nd partition (400GB) into hfs+, and successively try to delete it, I'll have the same alert type?

    Thanks
    Dario

    I tested for Partition A too;
    so I select partion A, type "-" sign, result is the same;
    system always response alerting about, both partition will be deleted, even if I select only one of them.:confused:

    ...and...
    using linux "Gparted" to remove the B Partition, could create problem?
