carry partitioning...

I use debain linux and when I installed it I did not make seperate partitions for /home, /var/, /boot etc. instead I installed all on one partiotion. My question is that is there a way that I can now create seperate partiotins and rearrange different folders onto tem without losing my data?

thanks in advance,

You could use tools like qtparted and ext2resize/resizereiserfs/etc. But it's not an easy job, especially if you are low on free space.

Hi Matir,
I have 55Gb of hard disk space out of which 20 GB is free now. I a m wondering if this is ok to create a new parition space with 10GB of space. Can you please confirm me? and which tool do you think is the good one to use?

thanks in advance,
