UE32D6500 - USB RECORDING ON HDD EXTERNAL 2 PARTITIONS

Hello,
i have a external HDD 1TB size and i'm sure i able to use PVR usb feature because TV asks to format it in order to be able to use it.
Now my HDD contains data/backups and i don't want /can't to delete them so i would to create another partion (2 in total) in order to use only one for PVR and other one to backup/show foto video and other.
My question TV when will ask to format HDD it' format only one partition ? If so, how can i be sure it'll format partition without data?
I think to be clear? Wink
Thanks in advance for your help.

Resolved!

first...I have a europe TV (Italy).
Anyway i reached my goal in this way:
1) i created two partition on my Maxtor HDD 1TB, (700MB + 300MB) by preserving the already data present in my HDD.
2) I plugged it in to TV and it recognized that how two distinct external sources (2 partitions -> 2 HDD sources !) then for timeshift/PVR funcionality i selected one (of course that with not data)
3) TV formatted source previously chosen....
NOW i have 1 HDD but 2 external USB sources for my TV, one for PVR/timeshift/ and other one for backup/video/photos/...
Great!
