I'm a little surprised. I would think that resizing partitions is a common request, that the idea of growing one partition while shrinking another is not a new or rare notion. Can anyone else share their views or experiences? The list archives contain few comments on the subject.
Resizing partitions is a common request. FreeBSD has some support for RAID-0 capabilities, ie concatenation which let one grow a volume or filesystem, but the problem of shrinking an existing partition with data on it is much harder.
That is something that one really wants a backup for, in which case one can take a backup, repartition, and restore your data.
BTW, some places have recommended commercial solution like Norton Ghost or Partition Magic. Do these products work on FreeBSD's UFS format and grok partitions-in-a-slice?
Sorry, I believe the answer is no.
