I am trying to dope that same thing out, made my primary a bit small. To do it with the drive its self is risky might lose stuff! The best answer I have gotten so far was to back everything up on an external then reformat the drive, have not picked up an external yet!

You could try the free Home Edition of Easeus Partition Master, http://www.partition-tool.com/download.htm

I've played with it before and it seems to do the job.

I've also found GParted http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ works well for resizing partitions also.

Good Luck,
