I second Shawn's comments. Partition Magic isn't too bad, but there are better/easier programs - I haven't tried Knoppix, but have had good results with ntfsresize on SysRescue (a live CD). Points to note defrag first... Make sure you go trough all the consistency checks - ntfs is pretty thorough in that regard, scheduling chkdsk bits...

Use ntfsresize, available on the latest Knoppix (bootable CD/DVD distribution of GNU/Linux). And you should back up your data anyway, even if you do give PowerQuest money for their solution, as I did have an entire filesystem get eaten by a PartitionMagic crash once. -- Shawn K.
