Resizing a External HD without losing data?

fi flag

So, I'm trying to create a FAT32 partition on my NTSF 2TB External HDD. The thing is, I have more than 600 gb of data and I have, right now, only about 50 gb free on my PC, so I cant back up.

Is there a way to create a new partition on my external drive without losing the 600GB+ of data?

If the goal is to modify your NTFS partition, I would *strongly* recommend doing it in Windows.

It can be done in many ways; but it's a risky procedure, so backups are considered *essential*. You can do it without them for sure, you're just accepting that risk.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
