I have an index file group that is filling up a disk drive.  The fill factor is set to 80%.  I also have a job that rebuilds these indexes when the fragmentation gets beyond a certain percentage.  I want to change the fill factor so the index size will decrease.  Is this something that can be done without having to drop and recreate the entire index?
