changing partition boundries

    I have XP-Pro on an 80 Gb drive, partitioned 20/30/30, and configured
    FAT32. I am 20% on C:, 39% on D:, and 20% on E:.

    I plan on moving/removing what's stored on D & E. I would then like
    to either change partioning to C:=40 and D:=40, eliminating E:, or
    make the whole drive one partition, C:=80.

    I would also like to change the drive to NTFS.

    Is there any risk in moving partition boundries? If not, what's the
    best program & version to use to do it?

    I plan on backing up data files on a second drive prior to this
    operation.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Use Partition Magic to write everything to the second drive if it's big
    enough. It can shrink the partitions as needed.

    Then wipe the first and set it up. Partition Magic it all back to the first
    and convert it to NTFS?
