    Can I change size of Boot Camp Windows XP Drive?
    I am ready to set up Boot Camp with Windows XP and will be using the newest version of Parallels which works with the Boot Camp partition.
    My question: I will likely use the default of a 32GB partition. Hard Drive space is precious to me so I don't want to make a larger Windows partition than necessary but as well I know with time things like an upgrade to Vista and the fact I really have no clue how much space I'll need may mean I need to make a larger Windows partition. Do I have to completely redo the Windows partition from Boot Camp assistant and start over or can I simply resize it and make it larger?

    You will have to wipe the partition to make it bigger
