    I am trying to decide how large to make my BC partition.

    I am not going to use Windows much except for the occasional MS Office/random programs.

    Would a 35gb partition be large enough?

    How large is your BC partition? What do you use BC for?

    I have the base Retina MBP. So 256gb HD

    I would advise on 40gb+

    windows takes around 24gb office can take around 3gb, leaving you with available space of 5-7gb (yes its smaller than 40gb I know, its because the filesystem is different and those 40gb that you put there before will likely be around 34-35gb)

    Can I increase the size of the partition later?

    No you can't. You would have to backup, then delete the partition and start over.

    Looks like they recommend 20GB so you'd want at least 60 GB for it.
