Is there any way to resize a HFS+ partition without loosing all the data on it? There are tools available for Windows, and I was hoping something was available for the Mac

The FWB drivers (Hard Disk Toolkit) supports this, but I dont think its possible without a utility. Windows has something called Partition Magic, if I remember correctly.
Nothing like this is availble for disks that use apples driver implmentation.

Problem is that Hard Disk Tool Kit only resizes HFS drives. It won't resize HFS+ drives. If anyone knows how to resize an HFS+ drive, I would greatly appreciate it.
