    Basically, ive got an XP Partition on my Mac Internal Hard Drive at 30GB's but I have ran out of space, so I need a way of increasing the size of that partition.

    I know I could reset my Internal Drive to a single volume again but then i'd lose all of my XP stuff (programs, files, etc) and it would take me hours to get everything back to how I had it before.

    I invested in a 1TB External Hard Drive the other day (great device btw!) and I have partitioned it that so I have 750GB's for Mac, and 250GB's for XP. Is it possible to clone my XP Partition on the Internal Drive to the FAT32 partition (XP) on the External Drive, then restore my Internal Hard Drive to a single partition and then partition it again so that I have more space for XP this time. After that, is it possible to clone my XP Partition from the External Hard Drive onto the newer and bigger Partition on the Internal Hard Drive?

    Many thanks, Stuart. :)
