I have an external hard drive, and I want to combine the partitions on it so that there is only one partition, but I do not want to erase my files. I've tried using Drive Genius, but it says the FDisk partition scheme is not currently supported. What other program could I use?

Thanks

What is the filesystem format of your external drive?

If you have access to a Windows machine, use PartitionMagic. It's so easy. I'm not aware of any Mac programs that do this - since I havent had the need to do it.
