Hard Drive Data Manipulation

I'm looking for a program which will push all of the data on my hard drive to the beginning of the drive (so all of the empty space is at the end).
Does anyone know of one?

What I'm trying to do is create a new partition at the end of the drive (without losing all my data) and this is the only thing thats stopping me.

Defragment isn't doing it for me.

I'm gonna look into partition magic once I get home.

There's some stuff that's unmovable. Set your swapfile to 0 and reboot before you defrag. Also, I think a few of the commercial defrag programs work better than the one included in Windows. Try Speed Disk by Symantec. I think there's another one out there that's supposed to be better, but I forgot what it was called. Sorry.
