don't think this is possible without reformatting the entire drive. ie all data will be lost.

iPartition from Coriolis Software should allow you to do this

www.coriolis-systems.com

Check with them to be sure however.

Note they are a small company in the UK and do take some time to answer mail

A google on Coriolis Systems should bring more info

They also make a defragger which is slow but a delight to watch it move blocks around
