Partition without data lost

in Mac Software edited January 2014

I haven a MBP and a Western Digital 500gb Hd formatted in FAT32. Now what i want to do is partition a 100gig of that FAT32 space into Mac OSX Extended, so I can copy files larger than 4gb. These 100gb are free but on the rest of the HD is data. Is it possible to partion it without losing my 300gb of data. Is there any app (I don't care if it costs money, just need to keep my data)?

    yep. partition magic

    It is a WIndows application so you need to boot into a windows OS and install it. Then mount the drive

    use partition magic to make 100 GB of unformated space. It will retain your data and move it.

    then boot into OS X and format the unformated space into Mac OS extended.
