You can use GNOME Disks to partition your USB thumb drive on Debian 10 Buster. To learn how to use GNOME Disks, you may read the article How to Use GNOME Disk Utility.

If you're using GNOME 3 desktop environment on Debian 10 Buster, GNOME Disks may already be installed. If not, you can install GNOME Disks with the following commands:

$ sudo apt update

$ sudo apt install gnome-disk-utility


If you're going to use the USB thumb drive on Windows as well, make sure to format the first partition as NTFS and second one as ext4. Otherwise, Windows may not detect the NTFS partition automatically.
