    I have an external hard drive that is partitioned into 3 areas: Time machine / Storage of DVD's / Spare.

    It appears I underestimated the space that Time Machine would use and want to juggle the capacity a bit. I have managed to reduce the storage area using Disk Utility>Partition (dragging the border method) but this only allows me to reduce that specific partition, not to then increase the Time Machine partition by the corresponding amount.

    Any tips?

    Thanks
