Resizing a fat 32 partition...

I was curious, is it possible to make a fat 32 drive bigger, by adding free space to it? I tried in qtparted...but couldn't see how. I've run out of space on my partition, and need to make it larger.

Help apreciated.

Recent versions of gnuparted can do this (and it looks like the feature's been there for a while). I suspect that qtparted is just a GUI front-end to gnuparted, so you might like to try using gnuparted directly.

Example here: (I think you just have to replace ext2 with FAT32)
