  • GParted for Mac. GNOME Partition Editor (GParted) is used for creating, re-organizing, and deleting disk partitions. It uses libparted from the parted project to detect and manipulate partition tables. CD/DVD Label Maker. IWinSoft CD/DVD Label Maker for Mac is a fast, easy to use, intuitive CD and DVD label app for Mac OS X lets you make.
  • This is a known problem with Mac OS X and it's hybrid partition table. The solution is to synchronize the MBR and GPT partition tables. For example: sudo gptsync /path-to-disk-device. See GParted FAQ - How can I fix missing or lost partitions on Intel-based Mac OS X?
  • GParted for Mac can be used on x86 and x86-64 based computers running Mac OS X, Windows or Linux, by booting from media containing GParted Live. GParted for Mac is a great piece of software that everyone should have stashed away, just in case they have any issues with their hard disk. It is very easy to use and is really functional.

Gparted For Mac Os X

OS X can non-destructively re-partition HFS+ partitions. Check out diskutil in the man pages. Not a GUI solution though.

In Tiger, the Disk Utility GUI does allow you to repartition a drive but it is a DESTRUCTIVE repartition (meaning that all your data will be lost!).
But in Tiger starting in 10.4.6, you can use the 'diskutil resizeVolume' command in the Terminal to NON-DESTRUCTIVELY resize a Mac supported partition. (ie You SHOULD not lose any data but backup just to be on the sage side)
Don't expect to read the Man Pages on this command. Apple has NOT updated the man pages (still true in 10.4.11). But if you type 'diskutil resizeVolume' in the terminal, you will get the details on how to use this command.
If you want a GUI on Tiger, use GParted. It is a GREAT Linux tool which is really a PartitionMagic Clone. Just boot the CD and use the GUI. Gparted Supports MANY more Filesystems than Apple's Disk Utility GUI or the diskutil resizeVolume command.
If you are on Leopard, you can use the new Disk Utility GUI which is supposed to support NON-DESTRUCTIVE partitioning. But I do not know how good it is.
Bottom Line - Repartitioning ANY Drive is risky no matter what OS you are using. It is always a good idea to back up your data on a DIFFERENT physical drive before attempting to repartition. Better be Safe than Sorry!

According to this page:
...GParted can shrink HFS+ file systems but it can't grow them.
Also, we should careful about the terminology here since it's important for understanding partition and file system management. HFS+ is a file system, not a type of partition as mentioned in another comment.

You have a MBP so your drive uses the GUID (GPT) partition scheme. Disk Utility can re-size and re-partition non-destructively. Consult the DU help.
Be sure to backup first just in case.
