USB flash drives 2 questions

Hi all,
I have two questions about flashdrives. My first, is there a way I can partion my USB flashdrive without any third party tools? And my second, is there any way I can use an autorun.inf file in Windows 7? It works fine in XP and Vista but what about windows 7? I have a batch file on it where it will run silently and take a users documents and transfer the files to the USB.

Found some forum answers dealing with the same problem i would suggest if this isnt sufficient infojust bing this : "can i partion my USB flashdrive" - this thread says you can do it in diskmanagement (xp) - right at the end -tedster's reply :
Why is it not possible to partition a USB Flash Stick? - TechSpot OpenBoards
and this one : Partition a Flash Drive? - Virtual Dr Forums-Computer Tech Support

As for the batch file - if it were me i would probably try it.
