Partitioning a USB drive Answered

Anyone know how to partition a USB drive? Meaning using a downloadable app, not crazy BIOS. It should be easier since it's not U3.

Try this software at http://www.rohos.com/free-encryption/downloads/
I've just tried the Rohos Mini Drive software and it works really well and was easy to use.
You can set up a partition (which seems to be limited to about half the size of the USB stick) and it is password protected.
I'm no geek but the wheels don't seem to have fallen off my PC yet!

GParted is nice if you're in linux, or if you download a linux distro and run it live.

I do have linux, but it's a very old distro, and doesn't really install apps. Oh, nice pic BTW.

I mainly use Windows, though, so I'm looking for a Windows app (XP SP3).
