I have a 2 TB drive that's being used as a mirrored 1 TB drive. my MacBook is getting slow and I want to use back it up. what would be a good program to cut out a 200 gb drive that the MacBook will recognize and use without losing my other data that I'm using for my Windows files?

Just run windows disk administrator and resize the partition and file system.  Then you can use the native OSX disk utility to create another partition in the free area.

(Be sure to do proper dismount / eject on windows, and OSX when moving it around).
