Creating a partition on an external HD for an encrypted Volume

<< < (4/4)

Gparted works very well. It's the Gnome Partition Editor app that is run from a CD.  Easeus Partition Manager will also do what you want. The home edition is free for non-business use.

+1 for Fudder's approach, though. It's simple, and works! Whatever you decide, back up your data. Did I mention back up your data? You can screw up a partition and have endless grief, so back up your data! (You really should anyway. I back up to a server and external drives, DVD's, etc. Paranoid? Oh, yeah.)

Last thought: do this when you're clear about what to do and expect. This is not a project to tackle after an evening of Ketel One and Cranberry Alize martinis.
