How to resize the Mandrake partition without losing all my data?


I want to increase the size of my MDK partition but preserving all the information that I already have on it (if possible).

I have MS Windows 2000 and Mandrakelinux 10.0 installed in a single hard disk. The Boot Loader I use is GRUB (installed at the MBR).

Is it possible to do that? Or must I resize the partition and start all over again (installing from scratch)?

Thanks in advance.

Qtparted does this well. Is very much like partition magic. In past when I have done this, I booted pc using a Knoppix Live cd and used qtparted to manipulate partitions.

Qtparted? OK, I'll give it a shot. If I succeed I will post it.

Thank you.
