I need some mac partition help..
I want to be able to create a Master partition (The one I am using now) and a slave partition (of about 50GB for other uses). This is for a pure security reason. I want to have a place to do some stuff that I would not generally do on my main partition (like run applications from unknown), or do things with the filesystem in experimentation.
I have several concerns/problems
It appears that each partition is equal. Meaning the 2nd can write to the 1st and visa versa. = Bad. I want the first to be able to write to the second (but not really required), and the 2nd to be impossible to write to the first. I know this is possible with a windows dual boot, but i'm not sure if/how it is possible with a partition of Mac os.
I would like them to have seperate file systems. Once again for experimentation and security-type reasons.
I want to use Mac OS for this. Windows is generally unacceptable, I try to avoid it if possible. Plus, the type of applications I wish to run and experimentation I wish to do is primarily unix/mac based. So I have a question. - Is what I want possible? - If so, how?
My computers is: - iMac running 10.8, 2011 version
I greatly appreciate the feedback and help.
