I need to resize my leopard partition


So i want to backup the drive on another one then resize my original disc & restore the backup on it once done.


I tried yesterday to backup the partition with Carbon Copy on an external drive then i restored it on a free partition of my ORIGINAL hard drive.


But the new restored partition loose many software registrations ( ableton live for ex )


I don t want to loose my software reg each time i restore my ghost ( i can t ask for a new code each time i restore my computer )



Anyone have a way to make a full drive backup witohut loosing any software reg ?


I will always use the same drive to restore my backup ( i ll just use another drive to store the backup )



I m also interested on a way to resize my leopard partition without loosing any data.



Thanks for your answers
