no there is, if you have unallocated space on your HDD that is.

download partition magic(google it) and use its wizzard for making a partition bigger.

There are programs which yuo can use to do it.

I used to have one, was a trial which came with a computer magazine... It worked fine and I managed my partitions... You won't have to reformat
(Unless you muck up)
