    my hard drive is a single hfs+ drive i have about 12gb free space i would like to partition about 8 of the 12 remaining gigs to a separate partition without loosing data
    i havnt found any software that shrinks existing partitions
    ive tried ipartition,disk studio and volume works they wont shrink the drive just try to make it bigger moving into the 128mb of unpartitond space on the drive
    any help i appreciated

    thanks

    I'm not sure about the software that would do this, but this sounds like an intrinsically bad idea. As soon as you get down to about 4 gigs left on your machine (I'm assuming it's your boot drive), you'll be getting into scratch space, and your computer will likely run like molasses.
