    I recently installed Vista via boot camp. I partitioned 10gb, but failed to notice that it is a 9gb install (d'oh!). Is there any way to change the Vista partition size without destroying it? (or can I create a 2nd Vista compatible partition?)

    Thank you!

    I think the easiest way would be to back up the Vista install using Winclone (fabulous utility!) then wipe out the Boot Camp partition, create a new one and extract the Winclone image there.

    There are more details on resizing options here.

    Has anybody done this? Has anybody had any problems doing this? Just curios as to how reliable it is.

    I have done it more times than I care to remember perhaps 13. Worked perfectly every time, but as always ymmv.
