The best way to manage partitions created in OS X, is the Disk Utility. It allows you to resize/create/delete partitions.


A third party tools (Gparted for instance) can also manage HFS+ partitions, but may sometimes produce incorrect partition layout or other issues. Disk Utility may refuse to work with the disk rearranged by a third party tool.


Disk Utility separates each HFS+ partition by a small portion of empty space. This space should be there.
