As far as I aware you can -

Plug in your USB hard drive into your PC then right click on your my computer icon and left click on "manage". Choose storage then disk management (Local) and you should see your drive. Right click for options and partition the drive and choose how much you want to be Fat 32 then format that partition. Do the same with what you left allocated for NTFS and format that and you're done

As is said above I believe it is possible, but you need to be aware of some of the potential risks and pitfalls.

There are many informative articles on how to go about achieving what you want to do; see below. However, it is very likely you will need to start from scratch with your needs which will mean deleting the existing partition and all the data it contains. So your first job should be to back up everything on the drive that you wish to keep.
