I have a FireWire POwerbook and the HD is partitioned into 3 volumes. I would like to take the 2 non-boot volumes and combine them into one volume. Is there any way of doing this without wiping the whole drive??

The only application that can do this currently is FWB's Hard Disk Toolkit v4.

This answer is even easier: I don't know.

Suggestion: email FWB and ask them.

ps Please post the answer here when you find it. I would not mind knowing, for the next person who asks.

To the best of my knowledge :

1. For FWB to resize partitions on a device it has to be using FWB drivers.
2. Exercise caution : if you install FWB drivers on an unsupported device anything, meaning ANYTHING, can happen. I recently installed a Seagate drive [ unsupported ] as a slave in a G4 with a Western Digital drive [ also unsupported ] as master. Seagate was toasted - twice - I am on my third replacement drive from Seagate. Both now have Apple drivers and all is well.
3. FWB also has trouble even mounting volumes with Apple drivers installed. I am using 9.04....

Hope this helps.
