    When I installed windows 7 I didn't partition enough space for all of the windows programs I need. To increase the partition to I have to completely reinstall windows?

    That, or use a partitioning program like iPartition.

    Microsoft says
    16gb min for 32 bit
    20gb min for 64bit

    People have gotten away with less but repartitioning can be a pain if the hard drive is fragmented.

    Suggest 30gb-100gb depending on what you intend to install in windows.
    60 gb is generally a good number.

    I have a 128GB SSD, so only partitioned 40GB. That is way more than enough, unless you plan to put a lot of games and windows based software on your Mac.
