    I need to expand my windows partition but don't want to have to erase the data on it. I have a bunch of games on Windows like Rift that would need to be downloaded again and Rift alone is near 10gb.

    Is there any way for me to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have used last week Paragon Partition Manager 11 to this. Be carefull not to create new partitons or delete partition since I have had that it corrupted the partition table. Make a backup first.

    Alternative is to use Winclone, make a backup and then use bootcamp assistant to create a new bootcamp (larger) partition and then restore.

    PS the only software that i found that will backup both OS X and NTFS at the same time is CopyCatX but you need a large external HDD and boot from an external HDD.
