If you add any make of External Hard Drive then Partition Magic will see it, this is because Device Manager recognises it as a Hard Drive and will give it a drive letter.
The fact that your external hard drive is connected to USB2 is immaterial to your question.
If you buy a large capacity external hard drive, then it might be advantageous to format it as NTFS rather than Fat32.
This is because NTFS can read files larger than 4.0 GB, whereas Fat32 cannot. This is handy if you want to use the drive to store back-up images of Drive C, as you would need less image files to store the data.
Thanks for that. I am reassured by what you say, because if I cannot set an external disk to logical it will cause huge problems - I run HyperOs and all disks and partitions other than C: (Which has no OS on it) MUST be logical and not Primary. A second primary partition will kill HyperOs.
On the subject of NTFS, I am extremely unlikely to have a file much in excess of 3Gb so will stick with FAT32 unless circumstances alter, but thanks for the reminder.
