    Dividing a hard drive is called partitioning. So you have two equal partitions. Are you asking how to change that so that one partition has a greater capacity than the other one?

    CampTune will non-destructively resize Boot Camp partitions. Aside from that, your only other option will be to backup the Boot Camp partition with a tool like WinClone, revert to a single partition with Boot Camp and then start the process all over again, restoring your backup with WinClone.

    If it were a Windows only machine, you could do it easily with several utilities, however, since you're running Windows on a Mac your only options are as cw107 advised you.
