Hi there,

I just wanted to double check that I can create a partition on my external hard disk without losing all the data on it by using Disk Utility in mountainLion.

Thanks in advance,

It depends on what format the drive is in.
I always ensure I have a backup before messing with DU.

Also there is now no technical need for Partitions, they are a limiting pain and eventually ensure a large amount of wasted space on a drive.
