Adjusting Partition without Reinstallation

Forums: 

Hi,

It has been quite a while since I posted something here.

I tried to search if this question has been answered already but i cannot seem to find the right thread.

I am maintaining a home server (kind of a sandbox for myself) installed with Ubuntu 8.04.2.

I wish to repartition a partition previously set during the installation but I am afraid to risk doing it without proper consultation.

The server contains valuable personal files, data, and objects that I cannot risk to lose.

Please advise if anyone has tried to repartition an ubuntu partition without reinstalling the entire OS.

If anyone has done it, please advise how to proceed.

Thank you!
