    Is Paragon Camptune X safe? I ask because if changing partition sizes is so easy possibly done within minutes, why can't be done by OS X itself?

    Yes changing partition sizes with Disk Utility is very easy but Bootcamp won't boot afterwards! Read the many sob stories on Bootcamp forums.

    There are two ways to resize a Bootcamp partition that I can personally vouch for (not saying others don't work, just that I have done these successfully).

    1. Winclone. Make a Winclone backup image of your Bootcamp. Delete your Bootcamp partition with Bootcamp Assistant. Recreate your larger/smaller Bootcamp partition with Bootcamp Assistant. Restore the back up image with Winclone.

    2. iPartition can resize partitions without messing up Bootcamp bootability.

    PS I would recommend the Winclone route personally, since it is also a great way of backing up Bootcamp.
