    Win 7 Bootcamp Partition size.
    Soon after I got my Mac, being a long time Windows PC user, I felt it was imperative that I have Windows on my Mac for the fallback comfort. Well now, I realize I never really used it and don't need Windows in order for me to use a computer comfortably. What I'm wondering is not how to get rid of the Bootcamp partition but instead see if I can change the size of it so that my Mac HD has more space. I'm running Mac OS 10.6.4 and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Thanks for any information about this.

    Non destructively changing the size of a Boot Camp partition requires the use of third party software.

    1. WinClone Free software but IMO, a bit cumbersome to use. Follow directions carefully.

    2. CampTune Not free, $19.95 from Paragon Software. This is my choice. Works well, is easy to use.
