Partition Resize - Without Data Loss?

My A2000 (Kickstart 1.3) has one internal hard drive on a A2091 card which is not partitioned. Approximately 14% of the hard drive is being used at the moment and I'd like to partition the drive.

I tried the software that came with the A2091 (I think) and it advised me that doing the partition would result is losing data on DH0: - anyone know of a util that will partition without this? or some util that will let me backup data to a SCSI CDROM drive on the Amiga?

I suspect that there is no live partition resizing software for AmigaOS 1.x (and probably not even for 3.x)

Creating an additional partition using the unused space on the drive without data loss in the other partition should be possible with HDToolbox?

Thanks, sadly that is not an option as there is no space for a partition. Guess I will need to look for a way of using the internal CD writer to backup the basics or just go with backing up on floppy.

Buy another hard drive? SCSI supports upto 7 devices on a single card. Surely you could get something for under 10 delivered off eBay.

Yes but where possible I like to make do with what I have, also locating another drive in the case isn't practical in my situation.

The alternative is a PCI SCSI card for the PC. You'd be able to transfer the files to the PC hard drive using WinUAE or ADFView and conversely you'd be able to transfer lots of files from your PC too all at extra high speed.

I have SCSI drive in another A2000 so it's an option if need be, currently unable to locate a CD burning solution for Kick 1.3 - will work something out, thanks all.
