I have searched for recommendations of a free non-destructive partitioning tool, and seems there aren't any out there or no real suggestions. But heres my situation. Added a second harddrive to my powermac. The first hard drive has two partitions (one for system, one for docs) and I have formatted the second partition after copying all files to the new second hard drive. I was hoping to now combine the two partitions on my original drive into one, so each hard drive had only one partition. The key here is I don't want to reinstall Panther/Apps/etc. _IF_ I, (1) boot from CD (2) copy all contents from drive 1 (partition 1) to drive 2 probably by creating a disk image of my hard disk. (3) combine partitions on drive one using disk utility (4) copy all files back from drive 2 to drive 1, again by restoring image made in step 2 Will I have any problems with Panther? Basically, are there "hidden" files or other unknowns that can't be resolved by a simple file copy or disk image? Or better yet, I will ask like a few have in the past, is there a FREE partition tool that will COMBINE my two partitions making this quick and easy. Can it be done with some UNIX command??? Your suggestions/comments/answers are appreciated.
