The advice is to backup the entire disk first with a diskimage tool...


Tell me that PartitionMagic, that registry repair tools and much else
don't give that advice too?

Offcourse they do..;-)

Nothing is idiot (or twisted fingers) proof.

What it DOESN'T say is that it works by backing up your FS, moving the
partition, doing a new MKFS and a restore from backup.


No it will work, but in case something goes wrong, you can put back the
image...
With PM, you only can place your back-up in exactly the same size space,
which does not help much, but if on another place on the disk, you can
expand the room afterwards, ti, if thought ahead, which in such a case
is totaly nessesary... ;-)
