You need to look for a tool that has the ability to resize partitions 'non-destructively'. Macosxhints.com gave iPartition 10 out of 10:
edit Sorry Tim, opened the reply window and then wandered off!
Even if iPartition is able to combine the 2 partitions into 1, you should have a good backup of the data you want to retain. On-the-fly partitioning is risky business. Besides, what are you going to do if the hard drive decides to give up the ghost before, during or after the re-partitioning? What would you do if the drive failed now?
it's just archives of old work - wouldn't be the end of the world if I lost it, but obviously best if I didn't! I understand it is risky business, but was more wondering if there was a relatively 'safe' way to do it, or if I was way off-base in thinking that.
Thanks all for the replys, I will check out the capabilities of iPartition.
Please let me know if anyone knows if this is possible or has actually done it.
