    I recently created a bootcamp partition for Windows Vista. I mistakenly went with the default of 32gb for my machine. Is there an option to resize this in the future without losing my data?

    You can clone to an external hard drive. Other than that, you lose everything.

    I was afraid of that. Hopefully Apple gives us more flexibility in the future.

    I do have an external hard drive. Do you recommend any software?

    No question about that- use the only utility (and it is free too!) that is designed specifically for that- called WinClone which can be found at http://twocanoes.com/winclone/

    Be sure to check the FAQ page in their forums at http://www.twocanoes.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=515 for info regarding increasing the partition size.
