    Previously I partitioned my HDD for bootcamp. Now that i barely use Windows and is running out of space, Im thinking of combining the partitions into 1.
    I was just wondering if it is possible to do this through bootcamp again without having to reformat the whole HDD and loose everything.

    So basically deleting the windows partition and combining the two partitions without touching the OSX partition???

    The documentation that comes with bootcamp tells you exactly what to do and it won't need reformatting, you'll get all your HDD space back.

    The boot camp installer does this for you.

    Positive. Your OSX side will gain all the free space your Windows side had. ALL Windows data will be lost, no OSX data will be lost, but back up your data to be safe.
