Default Small partition

A friend of mine has a 3gb partition of his OS, but now he needs to increase that size a bit. Without reformatting or anything like that, is there any way to largen the partition?

You can use Partition Magic. Always backup important files before resizing/merging or converting.

No way to just increase the size of the partition?

Yes, using Partition Magic. But it only works if your disk is larger than the current partition.

... and I'd still backup any sensitive data before doing any modifications to a partition.
