    I was wondering if someone knows a way I can reformat my boot camp drive to give windows more space without having to totally reformat my drive and reinstall everything. Thanks for your time and sorry if this is a double post. I searched here and the net and came up empty handed.

    There is a WAY!!!

    There is a way, it is a little bit hacky, but it works.

    1. Use Disk utility (leopard) to resize the OS X partition and make some more room.

    2. download and burn the gparted live cd

    3. boot from the gparted live cd and choose the macbook option

    4. resize the ntfs partition to fill the rest of the empty space

    5. ENJOY!!!!
