Windows 7: partitioning thumb drive

partitioning thumb drive

How do you partition a thumb drive? Obviously, Windows cannot do it natively, but when I used GParted to partition it, it failed. I can created a 16GB partition on a 32GB drive, but I cannot for the life of me format the other half.

I have been testing partition software since RC and Partition Manager 10 is able to do it.

Oh, you cannot do much with that unless you buy the full version.

Use Acronis disk disk director suite. Make sure you have the flash drive plugged in and boot from this cd Megashares - Drag. Drop. Yup. The first site to provide FREE file hosting with drag n drop support., Load the boot cd, goto partition tools, click Acronis disk director suite, goto manual mode and have a blast!
