My 16GB Windows partition has already ran out of space (1GB left) and i want to resize it to 48GB. I already have free space prepared from Disk Utility. Is it safe to use Gparted LiveCD to resize the Windows Partition? Or would it break the Windows Partition? If it won't work, what other methods do I have? I've already tried making a disk image of the volume and restoring it to a new partition as a test, but it failed to restore. The disk image was NTFS but it restored to the partition as FAT32 and failed to mount it, nor repair it. Could I create a FAT32 or NTFS partiton on my external drive, then copy the Windows to that, then recreate the partition and copy it back? And if I do anything like this, would I need to use a different OS that supports NTFS, like Linux? I'd probably use a LiveCD of some distro. Can data be copied between FAT32 and NTFS freely or would it alter the data? Can I copy all the Windows files from the NTFS partition to a FAT32 partition, and would it boot?
