    I recently created a Boot Camp partition on my iMac, however I need to make it bigger. Should I just delete the partition and make a new one in OSX, and then restore the system image in Windows using system restore? Or should I use Winclone to expand my current Boot Camp Partition? I currently have the 1TB Fusion drive, and plan to allocate 800GB to Boot Camp, and 300 GB to OSX. Is it better to use system restore to restore my saved Windows image or is Winclone just as safe?

    bootcamp

    That s not the right way to do it. What you need to do is access bootcamp assistant.After accessing bootcamp an option will appear "undo partition" or something to that effect. Click the button,it s automatic,does not even need a system restart.

    I think he already has windows and applications installed so that undoing the partition would destroy his work thus far.

    I use winclone a lot but since its no longer supported you could run into issues that can't be resolved.
