Hard drive space

I have to hard drives a 3.2g and a 10.2g, I have partitioned them off into 5 parts, 4 of them have 2g in each and one has almost nothing. Is there a way of getting everything into one partition without losing any data and how do I get my 5g that has just vanished?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As much as I hate to suggest an answer that will cost you money...

Go out and buy a copy of Partition Magic 5.0 from PowerQuest Corporation.  It allows you to resize partitions on the fly with no loss of data.

You can read more about it at PowerQuest's website (I pasted the URL below).
