    Hello! I currently have a bootcamp partition of 40GB, and I installed 1 game and *gulp* I have 2GB left. AHHHHHHHH!!!!

    So I saved up some space on my SSD, and now I want to dedicate 40GB more. How would I extend the partition of the bootcamp partition?

    I'm going to lose all of that time installing drivers, installing Windows and decaying my SSD! :(

    This is why you alwaysssss have at least 80-100GB on your BootCamp Partition :)

    Not even 128GB is enough for games. Just Crysis 3, Skyrim with mods, and GTA IV installed and I only have 30GB free. :(

    An alternative is running games off an external drive instead. A Thunderbolt based SSD should do the trick nicely.

    Games take up so much space! I wish I just had a 1TB drive to place 500GB just for Windows...and games... *sniff
