    Can I resize my windows partition in Bootcamp without reinstalling Windows 7 or will I have to delete Windows and reinstall it?

    Yes, simply shrink your OSX partition inside OSX using Disk Utility. Then reboot into Windows 7 and increase your Windows partition (use the free space from step1).

    Yes, Disk Utility comes with every Mac, it can be found from Applications > Utilities. Generally, HFS+ for OS X and NTFS for Windows. Click the partition in the left hand side and on the bottom there reads "Format"
