    How to shrink XP on my MBP
    After switching to MAC I rarely use Windows now but I do want to keep it for some Windows only apps. When I first got my MBP I was a Windows only user so using Boot Camp I divided my 300GB HD in half putting XP on 150GB. Now I want some of that real estate back.

    How do I go about 'shrinking' my Windows partition without loosing any data on my OSX side? Do I just use Boot Camp or maybe Disc Utility? Thanks
