comment Can I add a partition to an external hard drive without reformatting the existing one?
Is the risk just that you'll accidentally do the wrong thing, or are the operations risky somehow even if done correctly?

comment Can I add a partition to an external hard drive without reformatting the existing one?
@Ramhound The question says "Can I make an empty partition and reformat it without touching the other partition containing files?" I think that makes it pretty clear that "sure, you can shrink the existing partition" is an answer. The fact that the OP didn't know that the secret word was "shrink" doesn't change that.

@Ramhound If you read the body of the question, I think it's pretty clear that's what they're asking. (And you're the one who's suggesting something that'd turn this into a software recommendation question; the original question contains no trace of that.)

comment How to UNIX sort by one column only?
@MiNdFrEaK: If you have a completely separate question, ask it separately. This question is about sorting a file in a particular way, not about how join works.

@MiNdFrEaK: The requirement of join is that the input be sorted on the fields you're joining on. So sure, this output is sorted on the first field, and you can join on it.

comment Removing all Facebook evidence from a PC
Chrome doesn't need any special options for multiple profiles anymore; there's a great UI, assuming they're tied to Google accounts. You can find it in the settings in the "Users" section, or via "Sign in..."/"Signed in as [user]..." in the wrench menu.
