I'm about to purchase a new iMac and am considering which external drives to add for Time Machine and system backups. I've been looking at reviews of Western Digital's My Book Studio (2TB), but have gotten conflicting information about its ability to be partitioned and about whether it's capable of creating a bootable system backup. WD's website says it can create a bootable backup, but a couple of reviews I've read claim it can't. The only mention of partitiioning I've found was in one review which warned readers to be aware that it can't be done on the My Book Studio. I find that hard to believe, and was hoping to get first-hand information for any users. Thanks in advance for any comments.
