I have used Partition Magic with no problems encountered. It all worked fine - and resized the partitions OK.

PM will do what you want. However, even they warn you to do a complete backup first, in case it fails.

Well I have used partition magic 7 it work fine.

A word of caution b4 attempting partitioning your hard disk it will be better if u take back up of ur important files. Not that anything will happen. but to be on the safe side
