... some files cannot be moved.

I'm getting this error when trying to install Windows 7 via Bootcamp into a partition of 40GB (from 220 free GB).

I've read through a lot of the potential ways to sort this, but I'm a bit of a computer noob truth being told and I don't understand half the things people are telling me.

What is the easiest way for me now to install Windows in Bootcamp? A step by step guide would be great. I'm pretty reluctant to wipe my current Hard Drive, even though I do already have a backup saved in Time Machine.

Any help would be great...
