I'm trying to install Bootcamp and I can't create a partition greater than 7 gig. If I try, I get the error, "...some files can't be moved..."

I assume it's that I have files for existing programs scattered over the drive and the system won't touch them.

Does anyone know a quick fix. Do I have to remove my programs one by one until I can partition?

Is there a tool to clean up my hd without removing programs?

QUOTE Thanks
