We have a Dell PowerEdge server that has a ~20GB primary partition that is 99% full and a secondary ~100GB partition that is 99% free.  You are see the problem.

What is the best way to handle this (without a reload)?  I was thinking this:

1) Clone the drive for safety

2) Backup secondary partition

3) Used GParted to resize partition

4) Copy data back to new, large, only partition

If anyone has any suggestions or a better way, please let me know!
