What is still to change the size of the logical disk under OS X without losing data?

Welcome, tell me what do you use to work with partitions on the disk under OS X?

The task is simple — have an external drive with a single FAT32 — it is necessary either to convert to NTFS (or HFS, but then with the ability to do the reverse situation), or what is preferable — instead of the free space to create another partition.

diskutil resizeVolume disk2s1 limits gives "Volume format does not support resizing"

iPartition which Google first crawls too.

You can certainly drive with Linux loaded, but first where is now the home of the drive to find it is not quite clear, but the second something hard.

There is no need simple way?

ETOGES is still just an external drive, I don't want to break the system (by the way would like).

As far as I know, convert without losing data from FAT to NTFS is able to do only Windows. There are advantages — it is able to do any Windows starting with Windows 2000, it is possible to boot with a LiveCD, Windows XP and crank conversion. The same can be done without restarting by running the boot CD image in virtual reality

Leave it as is. Mac OS X without additional driver is not able to write NTFS. Well, Windows generally do not know how, except FAT/NTFS and spoil the remaining sections with a foreign filesystem.
