    Hi all,

    I've currently got a Bootcamp partition of Windows 8 on my iMac and I would like to do two things.

    1. Increase my partition size by 50-100GBs, preferably without having to wipe the Windows partition and start over.

    2. Update from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, preferably without having to wipe the Windows partition and start over.

    Is this possible?

    Use camp tune and the 8.1 upgrade is available in the Windows app store

    I would use WinClone to make a copy of my Windows environment. Then use BootCampAssistant to delete the Windows partition and return the space to OS X. Then once again use BootCampAssistant to create a new windows partition of the desired size, and restore the WinClone image to the new partition. This way you won't screw up your OS X installation.
