    Is there a way to partition a harddrive on a current running setup of Tiger, without redoing the OS?

    Asking because I'm wanting to switch back to Leopard by way of a clean install, and I don't have my external hdd with me to move the recent downloads off. I was hoping to split the drive into 2 partitions and move everything to the second partition, and then do a fresh Leopard install on the first one.

    No, you can't do that... (except if using Bootcamp) as soon as you partition the drive, all data will be erased.

    In theory I think it would be possible to create a Bootcamp Partition and put it there, you'll have your clean install...but then you are still stuck with one MacOSX partition.

    Good luck

    You could use iPartition - but it's not exactly cheap. For about the same money you could find a 160-200 GB off brand external drive on newegg.




    Never tried it - so Disk Utility won't non-destructively resize a partition in Tiger?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
