    Hey I'd like to expand my 40GB BC partition to a little larger, is that possible?

    Ah I see, thank you. It appears it's not as simple as I wanted, and is not worth the effort.

    That's a pretty accurate summary, unfortunately.

    Basically you have to...

    1. Clone your current Boot Camp partition to an external drive using something like WinClone - it is free

    2. Delete your current Boot Camp partition with Boot Camp Assistant

    3. Create a new larger Boot Camp partition with Boot Camp Assistant

    4. Restore your clone

    Ah thanks, it's still a bit too much effort for me though, I've just uninstalled Crysis: Warhead & Crysis Wars, which freed up a lot of space.

    PS: I never even see stickies :p
