    I originally set up only a 32GB Windows 7 Bootcamp partition on my 2010 11.6" MBA. I didn't expect it fill up so quickly nor did I expect this computer to use this computer exclusively (but now it is all I want to use).

    I would like to transfer an additional 16GB (or more) to my Bootcamp partition. Is there a safe and easy way to do this (without reinstalliing Windows 7)? (I am very tempted to let this justify the purchase of a new 11.6" MBA with the 256GB option...)

    Thanks!

    I'm about to create partition on a 11 with the 128. Are you finding the space being used up by adding in applications you use or is it the amount of data you are storing in the machine?

    I do not have large data files installed on my Bootcamp partition. The space seems to have been gobbled up by the applications. I also suspect that Windows 7 (and the continuous flow of updates) has chewed up a good deal of disk space.

    (I sure wish I knew how to remove the unnecessary Windows 7 files...)
