Hi I am going to buy a Maxtor 400G external drive to dump large music files on.

I have two pc's, XPpro and WNCE. I would like to know if I can split the drive (2x200G) and make each partition work only with the pc of choice.
This would keep things together and lessen the risk of accidental deletion.

Just thought. Would it be possible to have a small, password protected partition for V Important data?

I have dld Maxtors' manual but they don't cover this. I note however that they do say it is important to run software BEFORE connecting the drive. I suspect this is where some of the posters may have erred.

Dave.
