Usually when you're partitioning a drive, you will have to delete files, it's simply a part of the partitioning process ^^ partitioning the drive using the mac utilities will always format the drive.

If you wanna try and partition your drive without formatting everything, there is some software from subrosasoft called volumeworks which can dynamically repartition the drive without the need for erasure of data.

really, for the sake of stability and so forth, your best bet is backing up everything you have on your hard drive at the moment with superduper (great free program) onto an external HDD or second volume within the mac, formatting the whole shebang and repartitioning the drive and starting again

If this doesn't work feel free to tell me off xD
