I have a NAS (DNS-320) which has one physical 500GB HDD.
Is it possible to re-partition the HDD without wiping it (ie. retaining existing data). I can do this using "Parted Magic" live-CD on a laptop/PC, but not sure how to go about this with a NAS.
Currently I have one full/large NTFS partition on my NAS, but I would like to create a FAT32 partition.
Any help very much appreciated

The DNS-320 is a nas based on linux so even if changing the filesystem might work with gparted, you might loose the nas functionnality if the linux can't mount the fat32 partition (it is looking for a ntfs one).

You'll find various guides around to show you how to do this "safely" but honestly your best bet is to offload the data and rebuild.
