Thread: Create a second partition...
10-06-2006, 03:48 PM #1Create a second partition...
I have a PowerMac G5 (NOT Intel) with an 80GB HD, and I use Photoshop a lot, and I too often look and find myself with 241 MB free space on my hard drive.
So I want to create a seperate 20GB partition, and use that as my scratch disk. How would I go about doing so?
If it was the MacBook, I would just use the Boot Camp utility to create the second partition. But since that won't work on the G5, is there a similar app I could download that would create a second partition without erasing the HD?
If I did it with Disk Utility on the OS X Install DVD, would that erase everything on the hard drive?
What should I do???

You are better off getting more RAM, IMO.__________________________________________________

But I already have 3GB of RAM. The problem is that the Photoshop temp files get really big, so I want them to have their own place, so as not to risk running out of space on the startup volume.
