I was wondering if there were any freeware Partition utility programs like PowerQuest Partition Magic out there?

-Want to reformat drive but want to partition free space so i can move files out of drive before the format.

~thanks

That program will resize...but you have it in a compressed format.

Every compressed file format requires a program to open it and access the program, including the .zip format we're all familiar with.

Hmmm...this may help, http://www.packtpub.com/article/Partitioning_with_GParted

I don't know which version you downloaded...but I would use the Live CD. That way there's nothing to install, it can be used simply by changing the boot option in the BIOS (to facilitate use of the CD).

thanks hamluis. I found Paragon Partition Manager 9.0 Personal Trial at download.com. The trial version is only a 30 day download but it has a partition resize utility that worked nicely:)

Thanks again everyone
