Is there any way from Windows 2000 to resize a disk partition without using fdisk to keep existing data?

The only way you can do it in 2000 is if it is unpartitioned space. If the space has been partitioned, then you need to use Partition Magic.

Take a look here for more information:

Good luck!

Well since you're saying you want to resize the "partition" and not the "volume," I'm assuming that you're using a basic disk. If so, then a program like Partition Magic is your only choice.

If you're disks are setup as dynamic disks and the "volume" was created after the disk was converted to dynamic, then you may be able to extend it's size but not decrease it. There are a couple of rules that go along with this like you can't resize the system or boot partitions.
