    Yes, you can re-size it without destroying data. Download "CampTune" from Paragon Software. ($19.95) Be sure to read all the instructions that come with it. It requires that you create a bootable CD to boot your Mac in order to proceed with the partition resizing.

    Make sure you backup your entire system before doing any resizing.

    Regards.

    Hey guys,

    This is actually possible for free, using a nice little app called Winclone. It can be found here: http://twocanoes.com/winclone/

    Basically, what you do is make a clone of your Boot Camp partition (with Winclone), then delete it using Boot Camp Assistant. After that, you want to create a new partition (with the new size you want to expand it to) then restore your cloned copy of your Boot Camp system using Winclone.

    The reason I did not recommend WinClone to you is that the program has been problematic. Please do some WinClone forum reading before you decide to proceed with it. As for CampTune, up until a short time ago the program was in preview and was free. You may still be able to locate a free copy. Do some searching. In any event, $19.95 is too much for you?

    Regards.

    Thank you guys!
    I was thinking about Camptune indeed, but because of other problems in the bootcamp partiton, I decided to delete it, and then make another one bigger. It Takes just a few minute (but you have to reinstall windows).
    My new question is: is it bad to the hard drive to create and delete bootcamp partitions? this kind of operation, may damage the HD?

    No, it's not going to damage the HD. But I do recommend that you make a full backup before you make any major changes to the filesystem. If something goes wrong, it will be during a process like that - and often it can mean you lose all of your data.

    I have not had problems with WinClone and have used it several times to do similar operations. I have also used CampTune in beta form and it worked quite well.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
