ROON on Synology NAS using USB SSD for RoonServer Db. Is it possible to partition a drive instead?

Using Synology NAS DS3612xs CPU 3.1Ghz Intel Core i3-2100. SYNOLOGY Diskstation version 6.2.4-25556 Update 5. ROON on NAS version RoonServer_Synology_x86_64_2021-03-08 (1)
Roon V 1.8 (build 913) stable (64 bit)
Tablet iPhone Roon V 1.8 (build 913) stable.
Using Sandisk USB SSD 500gb for Roon Server db

Is it possible to partition the disk instead of using USB drive?
I’m getting problems with USB drive not ejecting properly and also unable to find ROON Core.

A reboot of the NAS and also reseating the USB port normally resolves the issue.

I’ve replaced the SSD USB but the problem is still ongoing. I wonder if the Synology updates may have caused the problem.

This is a duplicate of your other thread.

So I am closing this one.
Thank you.
