How do I partition a Fat32 external hard drive from the Acronis Bootable CD?
I have the following Portable Hard Disk Drive ADATA Superior Series SH93 2.5”
How do I partition it using Acronis Disk Director Version 10 Build 2160 using the Acronis Bootable CD?
I want to have 10 GB of unallocated space
NOT from disk management
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me

Yes, I had a problem , When I was creating the partition a dialog displayed "synchronizing with Operating System"
and never finished the task, the bootable cd freeze and I had to force reboot now I am worried if I my Portable Hard Disk Drive ADATA Superior Series SH93 is damaged for this force reboot
Do you know why the task stopped?, why "synchronizing with Operating System"? If it is a portable HDD, my new ADATA Superior Series SH93 could be damaged for the force reboot?
I have do this task with External Hard Drives w/NTFS format without any problem, but ADATA Superior Series SH93 is a FAT32
It shouldn't cause a problem to force reboot in that scenario. You may just need to fix the drive letter assignment if it's not what you want once you get into Windows. You could run a chkdsk /f on the new partition just to make sure there are no file system errors.
