I an runnung XP Home. I intend to purchase a new 80GB external hard drive fitted in an enclosure to connect to my USB port. the question is:-

Will I be able to Partition and Format this drive using Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management in the same manner that I would be able to condition a internal second drive?
