Hi;

Not 100% sure what you are trying to do but if I'm guessing correctly you want to keep the partition with 'Time Machine Backups' and then reformat the empty space for windows?

 

If that's the case it should be pretty straight forward as you can just reformat the free space to what ever you like (Providing the time machine backup is on it's own partition).

 

If not then save the backup image somewhere else and create 2 partitions on the drive...1 for your windows backup and another to reload the time machine backup into. Use Gparted to do this. Or Acronis software might let you partition the drive without copying out the Time machine data first (i'd still keep a second image up just incase)
