I backup with Time Machine to an external hard drive.  It is currently configured into two partitions, one being used to backup and the second used for other purposes.  I have maxed out the backup partition and wish to expand its size by eliminating the second partition.  Disk Utility allows the elimination of the second partition, but when I attempt to enlarge the backup partition to include the now unused space on the disk I get the following message:

 

Partition Failed

 

Partition failed with the error:

 

Filesystem resize support required, such as HFS+

with journaling enabled.

 

What does this message mean and how can I accomplish my goal?

 

Thanks.
