Default Storage Question

I have a 160GB harddrive with very little information on it, maybe 10GB (newish computer). I wish to Ghost or somehow backup the drive onto a portable USB 80GB drive. Can I do this? The drive is used mainly by my wife for small amounts of data, so can I partition the drive (I have Partition Magic 7) without destroying my wife's data? The USB drive has no operating system installed.
