In this picture you can see that there are two disks, Disk1 and Disk2. Disk1 is the hard disk and Disk2 is the USB stick. You can see that Desk2 is Unallocated. This is because I have deleted the existing partition of the stick. We will now create partition on Disk2. So let’s get started.

Right click in the DIsk2’s unallocated are and select create partition. The image below shows how to do this.

After Creating Partition

Now repeat the previous step to create another partition for remaining unallocated space. Note that you can’t see both partitions in windows explorer because Windows only recognizes first partition on a removable device. If you want to see the other partition, change it to primary partition and give a drive letter. Note: You can see only one partition at a time. If you browse the USB drive with more than one partition in Linux systems, you will see all the partitions. Windows doesn’t support both partitions. You can now use the USB as per your need.
