gparted 

It will show you your system drive/drives and will do all the manipulation
you desire.  A 
unique feature is that it will resize the extended partition and keep the
logical 
partitions intact if you need that feature.  If it is not on your system 

yum install gparted

To date I have not lost data but as always, backups are in order.
