You are welcome.
Terabyte products do not have any problem with mac partitions except that they cannot save the images inside hfs+ partitions. (IFL can save inside on non journaled hfs+ partitions)
Since you are newcomer on the MACs, the most important app for disk management is Disk Utility and you can use it for partition management,imaging,etc. But can only create an image from an unmounted partition so one has to boot in the recovery environment's Disk Utility, to create an image of the OS.
