Windows 7: Partitioning a USB stick

Partitioning a USB stick

Win 7 64 bit OS

Is there a way of partitioning an 8GB USB stick?

HDDs and Ext HDDs can be partitioned under disk management but not my USB stick, I can't shrink the volume as the selection is grayed out.

Is there any free software out there that will allow me to do so or is it posible to do it using Win 7 and/or command prompts?

Have a look at this:

It's for partitioning CF drives, but may point you in the right direction.

I would think dividing it into a couple of main folders would be just as convenient
