    When I open Disk Utility on my rMBP, I cannot resize the bootcamp partition, or Mac HD. The icon to resize image is greyed out and unavailable.

    Anyone know how I can change this as I want to give the Bootcamp drive a bit more space.

    Don't think you can do this easily, at least using Disk Utility, without making your Bootcamp partition unbootable. Look up Camptune X if you are desperate - not free though. Otherwise, it might be easier just to re-bootcamp.

    If you don't have too much free contiguous space, then Disk Utility won't give you the option. Plus once the drive is formatted to NTFS for windows, I don't think you can alter its size through Disk Utility.

    You will need to use something like Camptune. That partition is an NTFS partition and Disk Util cannot resize it.
