Is it still impossible to to resize, shrink or extend exfat partitions ? I cant find a way to do it, neither in windows nor with partitioning software. Any ideas other than formatting the partition to use a different file system ? I do not want to lose my data and do not have enough space for backup.

What operating system are you using? You need to backup before you attempt ANY solution. – Ramhound Nov 28 '12 at 13:39

It sounds like its still not possible to extend exfat partitions based on my breif amount of research. – Ramhound Nov 28 '12 at 19:04
