Hi,
Ive installed windows 7 on my macbook pro using boot camp. When partitioning the hard drive i set the windows space to 20gb, after installing windows im left with 10gb free which is not enough because i want to install 3d studio max and solidworks (CAD software). Is there any way i can go back and resize the drives?
Any help would be great.
QUOTE Thanks

Easiest thing to do would be to remove the partition through Bootcamp assistant and then just set it up again with a bigger partition size.

Thanks for the reply...I thought that would be the case, just thought id ask to see if there was a simpler way.
Would i uninstall that drive in disk utilities?

You can also grab CampTune from Paragon, not free - but it's only $20 and they've had it on sale quite often lately for $13.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
