Hello,

I have bought a Corsair Flash Voyager 8 GB. My question is : is it possible, and safe, to partition it just as I would do with a normal hard drive ? Thank you.

Yes, it is possible to partition a flash drive, and it is safe. To do this, you can use windows disk manager or other softwares such as partition manager from Paragon.
Just make sure that you format it in FAT32 so it is readable.

Formatting just deletes all information that is on a disk, so if you format a drive with two partitions on it, you're only formatting the partitions, not deleting the partition

so what you want to do is delete the partition between the two drives.. or at least make one of the partitions bigger.

in Windows 7
if you go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management > right click the partition you want to make SMALLER and click Shrink Volume, then right click the partition you want to make BIGGER and then click extend volume

you have now created a smaller partition and a larger partition

in Windows XP you're gonna need a program to do this.. if you google partitioning programs you'll find heaps, a good one that was very common was called "Partition Magic"

hope this helps

Can't Partition the Ext. HD


I am rusty on Mac's and can't offer any specific help, but I am wondering if your problem is in fact not a partitioning problem, but something else.

In the case that it is a partitioning problem, most operating systems (I assume OS X follows the herd on this one) have a partitioning tools on them somewhere. Have you tried formatting the drive?

Also, I hope you take no offense to this, but are you sure it's "partitioning" you're having a problem with, and not "reading", "writing", "formatting", "installing", or "mounting"?

You could try the company's website for tools that should let you do what you need to in order to get the drive to work.

If it cannot complete a format, you want to return it as a defective item, where you purchased it, for replacement.
