    I should have thought of this prior to having used bootcamp/win7 for a few months, but I am rapidly running out of space on my partition (something like 32gb).

    What are some recommended ways to increase the size of the partition? Is it easy to do through bootcamp - understandably the partition will be wiped initially and I'll have to go through the win7 install process again - but is this a painless process?

    Or is there some miracle where you can add space to an existing bootcamp partition? One can always hope :D

    Hey-o, doh.

    Thanks :)

    As someone who has given other people a hard time in the past on other forums for not seeing obvious things... my apologies :eek:

    Note the warnings in the guide. Many of the approaches have led to data loss. Backup early and often.
