I’ve a 5TB exterior SSD partitioned in half, one half for my Mac backups (APFS) and the opposite half (NTFS) for my PC backups. My PC backups are a lot bigger so I used to be break up my Mac partition in half and tried to merge the brand new 1.25TB with my different 2.5TB. I used EaseUS partition supervisor for this.
