    Adding more space to Windows Partition
    Shortly after using Boot Camp to install Windows Vista on my Macbook, I realized that I did not allocate enough hard drive space for the Windows Partition. Now I only have like 32 MB of space on the Windows drive and I frequently get notifications saying "Low Disk Space". So I've been trying to find different solutions to adding more hard drive space to my Windows partition. I've seen some things about programs like Parallels that might help, but I'm not sure.

    So I thought I would ask you guys to get your opinions: What is the best way to change the partition size on a Boot Camp install of Windows Vista? Is it possible just to remove the partition (and Windows along with it) and start from scratch?

    Thanks

    That would be the best way. You will use Bootcamp Assistant to remove the existing partition (the same as creating it). Do not use Disk Utility to do this.

    You can also use CampTune from Paragon software to resize your Windows partition non-destructively. Paragon CampTune for MacŪ OS X - Overview

    It's $20 but may be easier than deleting and reinstalling the partition. Many on the forum have used it successfully. Of course, definitely do a full backup before doing anything with your partitions.

    Cheers

    Sammy, question for you. After using CampTune, will BootCamp Assistant still work to restore your drive to a single partition, or would that also be done via CampTune at that point? Any other effect on using BootCamp Assistant you're aware of after using CampTune?
