Short answer, yes you can with the right software.
As long as your data does not fill up the hard drive partition.
I use partition wizard and use the resize then click apply.
You can clearly see where the data starts and the free space after.
Just do not resize into the data. And do not change the Primary partition. During the resizing you may have to set the new space to logical so the machine can see this partition. You may also have UN-allocated space after the resizing. You can format this to your choice. Select the the same format as your primary. You can do all of this before hitting the Apply button. The commands you give are stored as a script and launched in the order you selected them.
Link for partition wizard below. Read carefully before performing this on you machine hard drive. Be safe and back up the machine.

Hi- We have a 2 TB tower partitioned into 4

Try downloading EASUS Partition manager I have not used this with FAT formats but it works fine with NTFS, and allows you to alter partition sizes without losing data.

As far as I know it is only supported by Windows, so you may have to use a Windows machine to re-partition.

Drives - size

Resizing partitions is easy with the right tools, and near impossible without them. You will want to first
get a good hard disk imaging program along with an external hard drive (some drives come with imaging software bundled with the drive) a few examples would be Norton Ghost, Acronis True Image, Dantz Retrospect, Powerquest Drive Image and so on. There are even some good freeware and Open Source alternatives. By imaging your c: drive to a USB external drive you can safely edit your hard drive partition tables and then put everything back with no reinstalling Windows or losing any data. You will need to have a bootable recovery CD on hand when it comes time to restore the image from the USB drive to your system drive. I would suggest that you first copy all files you want to keep from the d: e: and f: partitions to the c: partition, then image the c: partition by itself to external drive. Take note of the c: partition type I.E. FAT32 or NTFS. Make a bootable utility disk (Ultimate boot CD available from for free) is one, an emergency boot floppy from Windows 98, ME, NT will work also. Boot with it and run FDISK to delete extended drive letters D E F and then their partitions and then delete the C: partition and finally create the C: partition with all available space and make it active. Replace the utility boot disk with the recovery boot cd, restart the computer and run the image recovery to restore everything back to your now 80gig system drive.

LE - Change partition size with RAID 5 ????

Hi, to partition a drive you would lose all information on it,
for example if i had

c: 40gb
d: 40gb
if i delete the c: partition i could make 2 partitions of for example 20gb without losing the information on d:
but for what you have you would be better deleting both partitions and recreating as one big one or to your preferences, either way you will have to install windows again, as windows will not work copying it from c: to d: .
Hope this helps
