I have a nice samsung TV that plays files direct off my USB hard drive. So I got a new 3TB seagate, and the TV sees it, but it doesn't see any of the files on it. So I thought maybe it's too big, maybe I should split it in two partitions, so I tried to use my Acronis Disk Director 10 - but that doesn't work - it says "locking drive" for a few min and then goes back to the normal "home" screen, doesn't bring up the resize options like normal.
Are there any other ways of resizing the partition without deleting the data?
