Hey folks, name's Rho. I've lurked around these forums for a while, but couldn't find any help, so decided to sign up. So, I've had my iMac for quite a while now (I'm not entirely sure about the specifics off the top of my head, but it's got 1TB space), and I've been running Windows 7 by means of Boot Camp for a few months, and everything was fine, but I was short on space with 50GB (I use Windows 7 for gaming), and decided to wipe it & make a new partition with more space, 250GB. Now, I've run into the same problem as hundreds of others on these forums, the fact that I can't partition the drive because Boot Camp doesn't like big & fragmented files (I'm paraphrasing). I've tried a few things on the forums, including buying & running iDefrag, which is a popular solution, but it doesn't help. Now, the problem is, either I have absolutely no clue how the backing up/Time Machine works, but I simply don't have an external hard-drive big enough to function as a proper back-up method (Well, we have a shared one, but TM said it wanted to wipe the current data on it, which was a big no), so I can't do what Boot Camp wants me to; back up my iMac, wipe it, restore. The thing I'm confused about is that, up until 3 hours ago, Boot Camp was running perfectly fine. Now, I've read that removing a Boot Camp partition can leave fragmented files or make it harder for Boot Camp to create a new partition (I only glanced at the post that said that, it was something like that, right?), and I'm running out of ideas. I'll take any and all help, though be gentle, this is my first post on the forums (on any forums, really), and if I skipped some vital information, just ask. Thanks in advance.
