    I have seen this question asked in the past, and the usual answer posted back is that the only way to change the partition sizes is to re-install! I doubt that you will find any software that can read/write/resize both Mac OS and NTFS partitions at the same time. If you do find such a thing, let us all know (please!), but if not, you may be stuck. A full re-install of your Windows environment may be required.
