    Hi

    Haven't used boot camp for a while, it had Win 10 on, and decided to update yesterday.... True to windows it took all day to get ask the issues, feature edition etc etc on.

    It's only a small partition 50Gb I've used, really need some more so I have 2 questions.

    How easy is it to expand the partition for boot camp to give it some more Gb.

    I want a simple way of backing up the partition in case either the HDD goes down or when I eventually get a new iMac I'd rather not have this pain again! Not too bothered on incremental and fancy stuff just a basic backup, not sure of this would be a Windows program or a Mac program. Ideally free or low cost as will be very rarely used.

    Thanks

    Hi!

    Here is a bad solution for you. If you can´t manage the issue another way.

    Download Migration for your Windows machine and transfer it to Parallels;

    Very bad solution. I know. But you will save the data.

    Best regards

    PS Very bad, sorry!!! DS

    Hi

    I don't have any specific data to be honest I only use a few programs/games and use Windows backup to a network drive for some folders.

    It's now the setup of the whole thing, it takes so long for updates etc, as I say haven't used for ages and ages and took all day to go from one version of Win 10 to another! Ridiculous.

    Would just be nice to have a image now of where it is.

    Thanks
