You can use the ntfsresize utility on Linux to shrink or expand an NTFS partition (boot, for example, with the DRBL live cd). To shrink an NTFS partition: shrink NTFS (the file system) with ntfsresize. re-create a smaller partition to hold the shrinked file system with FDisk. To expand an NTFS partition: Recreate a partition that's bigger than the previous one. expand NTFS to the full size of the new partition. The following are from excerpts from ntfsresize FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) : ntfsresize help: [tinker:root]:(~)# ntfsresize -h ntfsresize v1.... ntfsresize example session: [tinker:root]:(~)# ntfsresize -s11000M /dev/hd... Fdisk example session: [tinker:root]:(~)# fdisk /dev/hdc ...
